Wal-mart, the world's biggest retailer owning 48,000 stores worldwide, is famous for its low-price products and strong, distinctive corporate culture. All employees are made sure to know Sam Walton's personal values, beliefs and culture. These values are passed on from managers to their subordinates. However, these cultural traditions of the company are said to be male-oriented. This gender-biased is prevalent in the entire company and also the main reason for the complaints filed against it.Wal-mart is facing a class action lawsuit, which is weakening its good public image. The female employees claimed to be discriminated in promotions, pay, management training, and job assignments. In June 2001, the lawsuit was filed by six employees who accused Wal-mart paying and promoting men more than women. In June 2004, the US District Court Judge Martin Jenkins ruled that these women can sue Wal-mart in behalf of other female employees who were allegedly discriminated by the company.
