DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT Archives

SILICON VALLEY FIRMS FACE ALLEGATIONS OF EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION

Once of the fastest growing companies in the world-Palantir Technologies, founded by well-known high tech financier Peter Thiel-has been accused in a lawsuit by the U.S. Department of Labor of discrimination against Asian job seekers. Government attorneys allege that Palantir "routinely eliminated" Asians from the employment process, either when resumes were screened or during telephone interviews. The lawsuit arose after federal officials conducted a statistical analysis to confirm that Palantir, a federal government contractor, was in compliance with anti-discrimination rules.

PHILADELPHIA WOMAN FILES SEXUAL HARASSMENT CLAIM AGAINST WELLS FARGO

Wells Fargo's legal problems continue to mount. Just days after a 6.2 billion class action was filed against the company, and less than a month after company officials admitted that more than 5,000 employees had created over two million bogus accounts to meet sales quotas, the company has been served with a sexual harassment complaint by a former broker for Wells Fargo Advisors in Philadelphia. The complaint alleges that the company paid female brokers less than males in similar transactions, and engaged in retaliatory conduct against employees who reported fraudulent practices.

COST OF EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION MAY RISE IN NEW JERSEY

In the aftermath of a decision by the New Jersey Supreme Court, legal experts expect that workplace discrimination lawsuit awards will escalate in coming years. In Cuevas v. Wentworth Group, New Jersey's top court permitted a $1.4 million award for emotional distress to two Hispanic men who alleged race-based harassment on the job, including wrongful termination. The court's decision also made it more difficult for companies to get trial judges to reduce jury awards.
