Oracle Paid Women $13,000 Less Than Men, Analysis Finds”:

Oracle allegedly paid some female employees more than $13,000 less per year, on average, than male employees in similar roles, according an analysis of Oracle’s own pay data revealed Friday as part of a gender bias lawsuit against the company. The analysis was performed by economist David Neumark, a professor at UC Irvine, who claims the likelihood of such a disparity occurring by chance is less than one in 1 billion.

Neumark’s analysis was submitted in support of a motion to pursue the case against Oracle, filed in 2017, as a class action on behalf of 4,200 female employees who worked in the company’s product development, information technology, and support functions since 2013.
