California Federal District Court Judge Charles Breyer issued a tolling order extending the time in which Wal-Mart former employees can file individual claims. The order eliminates potential confusion that could occur if different judges in different districts had to make decisions regarding the statute of limitations.
All former class members who have an EEOC notice to sue shall have until October 28, 2011 to file suit. All former class members who have never filed an EEOC charge shall have until January 27, 2012 to file charges with the EEOC in those states with 180 day limits and until May 25, 2012 to file charges with the EEOC in those states with 300 day limits.
