118 gender-bias complaints at Microsoft, but firm found only 1 was ‘founded,’ lawsuit says

“Female Microsoft employees in U.S. technical roles filed 118 complaints of gender discrimination with the company between 2010 and 2016, according to court documents” writes Rachel Lerman for Microsoft’s internal investigation unit concluded just one of those complaints was “founded,” according to the documents filed by plaintiffs in an ongoing suit against the company.Microsoft has said a class action isn’t warranted because there is no common cause for the employees’ complaints and plaintiffs have not identified systemic gender discrimination.The tally of complaints filed by women in U.S. technical roles at Microsoft between 2010 and 2016 was part of an unsealing of documents filed by plaintiffs in an ongoing lawsuit against the company.In court documents, Microsoft also has stood behind its internal investigative process, which involves a four-person team that looks into each complaint filed with the company.
