LinkedIn Agrees to a $1.8 Million Pay Discrimination Settlement

Career-networking service LinkedIn has agreed to pay $1.8 million in back wages to almost 700 female workers to settle a pay discrimination complaint brought by U.S. labor investigators.

The U.S. Labor Department announced Tuesday that it reached a settlement agreement with LinkedIn to resolve allegations of "systemic, gender-based pay discrimination" in which women were paid less than men in comparable job roles.
