Court documents reveal 238 gender discrimination and harassment complaints filed against Microsoft

Out of 118 gender discrimination complaints filed by women at Microsoft, only one was deemed "founded" by the company, according to the unsealed court filings. SAN FRANCISCO, March 12 (Reuters) - Women at Microsoft Corp working in U.S.-based technical jobs filed 238 internal complaints about gender discrimination or sexual harassment between 2010 and 2016, according to court filings made public on Monday.
