Toshiba (TANE) – Workers Class Action Lawsuit Initiated
A gender discrimination claim has been initiated against Toshiba American Nuclear Energy Corporation by its Human Resources Manager — Elaine Cyphers. The workers class action lawsuit is a companywide complaint that alleges patterns of discrimination against female employees in the workplace, such as unequal pay, promotion denials, less desirable job positions and disparate treatment. Cyphers personally experienced retaliation that affected her reputation and obstructed her ability to advance. The workers class action lawsuit seeks over $100 million in damages, as well as front pay, back pay and lost benefits.
The Civil Rights Act, Equal Pay Act and Fair Labor Standards Act, along with the California Fair Employment & Housing Act and other statutes, strictly prohibit the unlawful treatment of female workers. Gender discrimination can prevent an employee from obtaining enhanced work benefits, promotions and training opportunities. Victims are also subjected to harassment, unwanted touching and derogatory remarks.
