Tech Company Allegedly Withheld Wages from Underrepresented Employees

April 3rd, 2019
employment law

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) is accusing Oracle, a computer technology cooperation, of allegedly withholding $400 million in wages from workers. Women and racially underrepresented employees, including African-American, Latino, and Asian workers, are among those affected. Once hired, these workers were initially paid substantially less than their coworkers.

The OFCCP made a further complaint about Oracle, stating that they allegedly deny growth and opportunities to non-Asian employees and those with visas. Non-white and non-male workers are placed into lower paying roles to maintain a hierarchy of pay within the company. Discriminatory acts have caused the OFCCP to file many complaints against Oracle and their actions.

Oracle has been allegedly discriminating against their employees since 2013 and caused a loss of over $400 million within these groups of workers. The suit alleges they hired international workers who became dependent on Oracle with their visa sponsorship programs. This led to both a lawsuit from the OFCCP and an employee-run class-action suit, stating that Oracle pays male employees significantly higher than woman with the same job titles.

The OFCCP’s suit against Oracle last year urged the company to compensate employees who have been incorrectly waged. This suit is also urging the government to take away Oracle’s annual contracts worth up to $100 million.
