Two female employees accused Apple of gender discrimination

In a class-action lawsuit, Justine Jong and Amina Salgado allege that the company pays women less than men for “practically identical work.” The plaintiffs argue that Apple does this “intentionally” and “systematically.”

The lawsuit also claims that the employer requests salary history data from previous jobs and bases its pay on that information. The women contend they have encountered a “glass ceiling”: men are promoted for the same achievements that women are not.

According to the plaintiffs, when it comes to performance evaluations, Apple rewards men for certain behaviors but downgrades women for the same actions, which directly impacts employees’ earnings.

Justine Jong notes that she faced sexual harassment from another company employee placed to work closely with her. When she requested his relocation, her request was denied.

Meanwhile, Amina Salgado was only able to secure a pay raise after providing evidence from an external investigator. However, she was never compensated for the emotional distress.

This isn’t the first time Apple has been accused of discrimination. For instance, last year, the U.S. Department of Justice found the company biased against green card holders in its hiring practices.
