The suit, which will be filed today in the US District Court in Washington, claims that Microsoft has discriminated against current and former black employees.
According to US law firm Gary, Williams, Parenti, Finney, Lewis, McManus, Watson and Sperando, the class action suit will allege that Microsoft violated civil rights and discriminated against black employees in evaluations, compensation, promotions, wrongful termination and retaliation.
The suit will build on an existing complaint filed last year by Rahn Jackson, a former Microsoft employee, who claims racial bias by the software giant. A press conference will be held this afternoon by Willie Gary, a senior partner at the law firm.
Microsoft has not commented on the lawsuit but said it does not tolerate discrimination in its employment practices.
