Ex-employees sue Nike, alleging gender discrimination
Friday, 10 August 2018 () Claiming a culture of sexual harassment and gender bias at Nike that left women demeaned and underpaid, two former employees sued the sports apparel company late Thursday, demanding more equitable policies. The federal lawsuit, which seeks class action status, was filed on behalf of Kelly Cahill and Sara Johnston in Portland. Johnston worked at the Oregon company for nearly a decade until she resigned from her analyst role in November; Cahill gave up her position as a director in July 2017 after almost four years there. Both women left Nike, the world’s largest sports footwear and apparel company, because of the hostile work environment, according to the complaint.
