The demand had been presented/displayed in the name of 1.6 million women. Of to have prospered, the chain must have paid thousands of million. The decision of the High Court of the USA was made unanimously. The Supreme Court of the USA rejected east Monday a collective demand against the chain of stores Wal Mart, presented/displayed in the name of 1.6 million women who had alleged sexual discrimination in the treatment. The Supreme one considered that the demand, that had been able to give like result the payment of thousands of million dollars in compensations, cannot continue as complains collective, reason why the women will have to continue with their for a reason or purpose individual denunciation. The decision of the High Court, who will have repercussion in the labor policy of the great companies, was made unanimously. This way, the Supreme one has been aligned with the arguments of Wal Mart, the greater company by number of employees of the USA, that dndido are during the process that their policies prohibit the discrimination explicitly and promote the diversity in his it soles labor the case started in 2001, when six employees demanded as much to the company by discrimination in their remuneration as in their possibilities of ascent because of sort. The woman who promoted the first denunciation was Betty Dukes, receptionist in a store of Walmart in Pittsburg (Californian), after stating that the company had discriminated it so much in the pay as in the possibilities of promoting for being woman and Black.

Eleven days after Dukes presented/displayed its complaint added other five women to him, and soon the demand became a case of discrimination by sort in all the company. In June of 2001, federal judge of San Francisco Martin Jenkins approved to group the case as she complains collective, within some margins of a law that regulates these situations. The judge defined to the group plaintiff like " all the women employed in any store of Walmart in the United States from December of 1998" , indicating that those women " they have been or they can have been subject of the remuneration policies and promotions questioned in Walmart ". 500,000 workers the opinion, ratified the year last through the Court of Appeals of the Ninth Federal District, implied that the demand by discrimination by sort, to which 500,000 workers were united, could extend to all the employees or ex- employees of the company/signature, which would add 1.6 million. Walmart appealed to the Supreme Court alleging that there was no place for a collective demand for three reasons.

The first place, argues the court, the women " they had different uses, in different stores, states different and low the supervision from managers distintos". The second reason has to do with slow grounds that the plaintiffs protested, and who, according to the company, are not endorsed by the present legislation under any circumstance. The third argument of the lawyers of Walmart is that to give course to the complaint of a so big group it would violate the rights of the company under the Constitution of the United States, and the rights of the employees who are not involved directly in the case. Walmart, with sales by 400,000 million dollars and gains of more than 15,000 million dollars the last year, has the 3,400 premises in 41 regions of the United States, and counts with more of a million employees.
