Oracle didn’t engage in deliberate pay bias against women, Black and Asian people: judge

Labor Department loses suit claiming software giant paid White men more

The federal government has lost its pay-discrimination lawsuit against Bay Area software titan Oracle, with a judge ruling the company didn’t practice intentional bias against women and Black and Asian people.

The Department of Labor sued the Redwood City firm in 2017, claiming it engaged in “a systemic practice of paying Caucasian male workers more than their counterparts in the same job title, which led to pay discrimination against female, African American and Asian employees.”

But an administrative court judge in a ruling last week said the department “has not established that Oracle has a pattern or practice of disparate treatment compensation discrimination against women and minorities as alleged.” The firm did not, as alleged, have a policy or practice of relying on prior pay in setting salaries, or steer women and minorities into lower-paying jobs, Judge Richard Clark wrote in his Sept. 22 decision in the Labor Department’s administrative trial court.
