Microsoft investigates complaints of discrimination against women

The Quartz website reported that Microsoft investigated dozens of complaints that accused the company's management of discrimination against women and other harassment complaints from female employees.

 

It started on March 20 when an employee of the company sent an Email to her female colleagues asking them for advice on the job, saying that after 6 years of being in her job, she did not see any role or progress to make in Microsoft.

 

Many colleagues responded to this letter that they also complain of the same problem and that they work in the same degree of employment without progress or promotion compared to men, and there are complaints of harassment and verbal abuse against some of them.

 

After the complaints were sent to Microsoft's Human Resources Department, they were completely ignored and weren't investigated or verified.

 

The complaints were part of a series of rumors about Microsoft and Google, as many women accused the technology companies of discriminating against them, with a wage gap compared to men, and harassment problems.

 

In terms of trading, Microsoft index rose 0.1% to close at $120.3, with the highest price in trading today at $120.8 and the lowest price at $119.9.
