Shaune Patterson, a former employee who worked as a human resources compensation consultant, has filed a discrimination against Apple Computer alleging that she was wrongfully terminated after she complained of being paid less than her counterparts.
The suit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California in San Francisco.
The amended complaint, filed May 16 2005, includes claims of sexual orientation and genetic characteristic discrimination and alleges that an Apple manager referred in a memo to her weight, sexual orientation and her race in a derogatory manner.
Patterson is being represented by Waukeen McCoy. McCoy represented another former Apple employee in 2001 who sought $40 million in damages over alleged racial discrimination.
