CWA Sues Facebook for Gender Discrimination on Job Ads

Never a dull moment concerning Facebook.   Silly7

CWA, the ACLU, and Outten & Golden LLP filed charges this week with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) against Facebook and 10 other employers for unlawfully discriminating on the basis of gender by targeting their job ads on Facebook to male Facebook users only – excluding all women and non-binary users from receiving the ads. Targeting job ads by sex is unlawful under federal, state, and local civil rights laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

"Our members have been on the frontlines ensuring that women have opportunities to apply to and be hired for any job they're qualified to do," said CWA Secretary-Treasurer Sara Steffens. "Despite the progress we have made, stereotypes and biases clearly still influence corporate hiring strategies. Shame on these employers for targeting ads based on gender, and shame on Facebook for facilitating this practice."
