Lawsuit Claims Microsoft Discriminated Against Women

A former Microsoft employee has filed a lawsuit against the company claiming its policy of ranking employees discriminates against women.

Microsoft Corp on Wednesday was hit with a proposed class action lawsuit in U.S. court claiming its policy of ranking employees to determine pay and promotions led to discrimination against women. The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Seattle, Washington by former technician Katherine Moussouris, who claims she was passed over for promotions given to less-qualified men and was told supervisors did not like her "manner or style."
