Female Managers of Family Dollar Stores Allege Discriminatory Pay Practices

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to review a decision of the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirming in part the dismissal of class claims in a sex discrimination suit against Family Dollar Stores after finding the complaint's allegations were insufficient to establish commonality. Current and former female store managers of Family Dollar Stores filed a class action complaint alleging they were paid less than male store managers in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The district court granted Family Dollar's motion to dismiss the class allegations and denied the plaintiffs' subsequent motion to amend their complaint, concluding the plaintiffs could not demonstrate commonality because Wal-Mart Stores Inc. v. Dukes, 131 S.Ct. 2541 (U.S. 2011), foreclosed certification where claims are premised on discretionary decision-making. The plaintiffs appealed. The Fourth Circuit rejected the district court's interpretation of Wal-Mart, concluding that even when a plaintiff alleges discretion, a putative class can satisfy the commonality requirement if there is an allegation that the exercise of discretion is tied to a specific company-wide policy or practice affecting the class in the same way. Because the allegations in the plaintiffs' original complaint did not show that discretion with respect to store managers' compensation was exercised in a common way with some common direction, the district court's dismissal of the class action allegations was proper.
