Three engineers sue Uber over unequal pay, claiming sex and racial discrimination

Three Latina software engineers are suing Uber for allegedly discriminating against women and people of color. Reuters reports that Ingrid Avendano, Roxana del Toro Lopez and Ana Medina filed the lawsuit on Tuesday in the Superior Court of San Francisco. It claims they were compensated less because of their gender and race.

According to Reuters, the lawsuit says Uber used an employee ranking system that is “not based on valid and reliable performance measures” and gave women, Latino, American Indian and African American employees lower scores than men and white or Asian employees.
