The folks in tech are SO ready to tell us how much more enlightened they are than those of us in “fly-over” country. (Right behind entertainment and ahead of sports-figures.) Microsoft women filed 238 discrimination and harassment complaints
A lawsuit, filed in 2015, has entered the discovery phase, so a lot stuff is being made public.
Out of 118 gender discrimination complaints filed by women at Microsoft, only one was deemed “founded” by the company, according to the unsealed court filings.
That is a lot of complaints for only one to be found to be of substance. Or so it seems. Can I assume that when lawyers are using the term “shocking” in filings, things aren’t good? Or does this kind of language seep into most court cases? They also called the investigation process “lackluster.”
