Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer Led Illegal Purge Of Male Employees

Yahoo sure is having a bad day/week/month/year/forever. I mean, is there an area where Yahoo hasn't totally screwed the pooch since Mayer has been at the helm? I predict a settlement in this case.

"Mayer encouraged and fostered the use of (an employee performance-rating system) to accommodate management’s subjective biases and personal opinions, to the detriment of Yahoo’s male employees," said the suit by Scott Ard filed this week in federal district court in San Jose. His lawsuit also claims that Yahoo illegally fired large numbers of workers ousted under a performance-rating system imposed by Mayer. That allegation was not tied to gender.
