Twitter Targeted Women In Its Layoffs, Lawsuit Claims

A new lawsuit bordering on Twitter Inc and its layoffs has accused the social media firm of disproportionately targeting female employees.

The class action has it that Twitter laid off 57% of its female workers compared to 47% of men after it was taken over by Elon Musk.

Twitter laid off roughly 3,700 employees in early November in a cost-cutting measure by Musk. Hundreds subsequently resigned.

The gender disparity was more stark for engineering roles, where 63% of women lost their jobs compared to 48% of men, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit was filed by two women who were laid off by Twitter last month and it accuses the company of violating federal and California laws banning workplace sex discrimination.
