Lieff Cabraser’s employment law group is investigating multiple reports of significant gender-based pay disparities at Apple Inc. Women working at Apple claim they are hired for less money than men, paid less than men, and face similar gender-based discrimination in promotion and other advancement at the company. Indeed, recent reports by Digital Info World and The Verge indicate that on average women receive $12,000 less than similarly-qualified men. Reports also indicate that when female employees at Apple have tried to verify such claims, Apple has summarily shut down the surveys for “violating employee data collection policies.”
If you know or suspect you are being paid less than equally qualified men, or have experienced what you feel is discrimination in promotion and advancement at Apple, we urge you to talk to Lieff Cabraser Employment Practice Group partner Lin Chan today. There is no charge or obligation for our review of your case, and the information you provide will help us hold Apple accountable for its pay and promotion discrimination.
Lieff Cabraser’s nationally-recognized employment lawyers are litigating many of the most significant employment class action lawsuits in the U.S. today. These include cases challenging gender and race discrimination, where female or minority employees are not hired, are paid less than their white male counterparts, or are given fewer opportunities to advance at the company.
