A lawsuit filed against Apple by a female engineer from India over claims of workplace discrimination will proceed, a judge in California has ruled.
As reported by Bloomberg, Apple is being sued by Anita Nariani Schulze, a female engineer from India:
Apple Inc. lost an early round in a discrimination lawsuit brought in the U.S. by a female engineer from India who says her two managers — one from her country, the other from Pakistan — treated her as they would in their own countries: as a subservient.
The report says that Schulze is “part of the Sindhi minority”, a Hindu with ancestry traced back to the Sindh region of what is now Pakistan. In her suit against the company, Schulze claims that two of her managers, one from India and the other Pakistan, “consistently excluded her from meetings while inviting her male counterparts, criticized her, micromanaged her work, and deprived her of bonuses, despite positive performance evaluations and significant team contributions.” The background filing for the case claims that Schulze’s managers “knew of and were familiar with her racial, national, and religious heritage”, stating “their respective nationalities historically viewed women as subservient, and they treated Ms. Schulze as subservient.”
