Microsoft's female employees found to have 238 complaints of gender discrimination

It has been publicly announced that Microsoft's US-based technical workers are complaining of 238 gender discrimination and sexual harassment between 2010 and 2016. This information was noticed in the case files filed at the beginning of the week.

According to court documents, Microsoft claimed that salary increases and promotions were systematically delayed in joint cases against female employees of the company.

According to Reuters, Microsoft has defended itself by declaring that female employees are not adopting such a policy on hike and promotion.

Microsoft lawyers who advocate female employees are said to be ready to file a collective lawsuit involving more than 8,000 employees.

It is also among the information that the lawyers of both sides are starting to share documents before the case, which has not yet been determined.

According to publicly disclosed documents of the first cases launched in 2015, only one of the 118 complaints of gender discrimination submitted to the Microsoft human resources department was accepted by the company.

While lawyers for female employees pointed out that some complaints of discrimination and harassment were "shocking", Microsoft's inquiries about the issue were "reluctant."

Since companies often keep discriminatory complaints as confidential information, it is not possible to compare Microsoft's complaints with their competitors.

The plaintiffs have not yet responded to requests for collective action by US District Attorney James Robart.
