Dell Inc. agreed to pay $9.1 million to settle a class-action lawsuit claiming the company had discriminated against female employees. Two former employees, Jill Hubley and Laura Guenther, sued Dell in federal court alleging a “practice of gender discrimination with respect to compensating and promoting female employees” within the company.
The settlement provides $5.6 million back pay for female employees and former female employees who were in certain job grades between early 2007 and the end of 2008. Additionally, the settlement will cover $1.1 million in plaintiffs’ legal costs. Another $3.5 million will be used to establish a pay-equity fund for current female employees in certain job grades covered by the lawsuit.
