Software Giant Faces Bias Suit

Microsoft Corporation was hit with one of the largest discrimination suits in U.S. history. Seven African-Americans alleged racism and a "plantation mentality" at their workplace.

The $5 billion suit alleges the employees were repeatedly passed over for promotions, paid less than white employees and subjected to harassment and retaliation when they complained and wrongful termination.

This is the second bias suit against the Redmond, Washington-based Company in the past three months.
