Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) has just been slapped with sex discrimination lawsuit and the former Twitter engineer who filed the suit has made five demands to end sex discrimination incidents in the company.
According to Mashable which obtained the text of the lawsuit filed by Tina Huang, the former Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) employee has made “demands” demands including adopting non-discriminatory and objective promotion standards and creating a transparent and non-discriminatory job posting and application process for Senior Staff Engineer and similarly-titled positions.
“Promotion into Twitter’s senior technical positions is based on subjective judgments, by committees that are comprised of and dependent on upper management at Twitter, and predominantly male. These judgments are tainted with conscious or unconscious prejudices and gender-based stereotypes, which explains why so few women employees at Twitter advance to senior and leadership positions,” Huang’s filing is quoted saying by Mashable.
Furthermore, Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) should institute an affirmative action policy, Huang is said to have included in her lawsuit, to ensure that “women receive the share of Senior Staff Engineer and similarly-titled positions they would have obtained were it not for Twitter’s discriminatory practices.”
The company should also create a monitoring and reporting system to ensure injunctive relief is implemented for complainants.
Mashable says that Huang was a Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) employee from 2009 until June 2014. He suit was filed on Thursday at the California Superior Court.
According to the company, Huang “resigned voluntarily” after negotiations where the social network’s leaders tried to persuade her to stay. Huang was “not fired,” the social network told Mashable.
However, the lawsuit said that Huang was put on leave for three months pending an investigation after she sent an email to CEO Dick Costolo detailing her concern about the promotion process at the company. The suit also said that after three months without any update about the investigation and when she should return to work, Huang resigned “for the sake of her career”.
