SpaceX worker alleges severe sex bias, retaliation in U.S. lawsuit

·1 min

Rocket maker SpaceX is facing a new lawsuit that accuses the company of gender discrimination, unequal pay, and retaliation against a female employee who reported sexual harassment. The lawsuit, filed in California state court, claims that SpaceX has ignored complaints of bias against women by the employee and others. The employee also alleges that her married supervisor pressured her into a sexual relationship, offered her money for an abortion, and then transferred stock options to avoid child support. SpaceX has not yet responded to the lawsuit. This comes as SpaceX is already facing other lawsuits and investigations regarding discrimination and harassment. The company denies any wrongdoing and is seeking to block one case, claiming constitutional violations.
