Walmart has reached a class action settlement over its one-time national policy that barred pregnant workers from being assigned lighter work in its stores.

The proposed settlement, if approved by a federal judge in the Southern District of Illinois, will end a more than six-year legal battle that began with a complaint by a worker at a Walmart store in O'Fallon.

Under the settlement, which is described in filings by the plaintiff attorneys as unopposed by the retail giant, the company will pay a total of $14 million into a common fund. The settlement estimates each class member will receive between $819 and $2,049 based on 11,000 individuals who faced a similar situation dating back to early March 2014, and depending on how many apply.
