Lawsuit: Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer led illegal purge of male employees

MercuryNews: A prominent local media executive fired from Yahoo last year has filed a lawsuit accusing CEO Marissa Mayer of leading a campaign to purge male employees.

“Mayer encouraged and fostered the use of (an employee performance-rating system) to accommodate management’s subjective biases and personal opinions, to the detriment of Yahoo’s male employees,” said the suit by Scott Ard filed this week in federal district court in San Jose.

Ard, who worked for Yahoo for 3 ½ years until January 2015, is now editor-in-chief of the Silicon Valley Business Journal. His lawsuit also claims that Yahoo illegally fired large numbers of workers ousted under a performance-rating system imposed by Mayer.  MORE

  1. I already had quit Yahoo as a home page due to their outright biased news selection.
    But I also started realizing that those little “news” interruptions on the front of my phone had become all anti-Trump. These notices were being pushed by Yahoo. I had to shut that crap down.
    I want in on that class-action against Yahoo for their privacy violations in the NSA’s service.

  2. They hand out customer info to the government freely, they can’t keep their email services secure, they put a lying skank like katie couric on their payroll (her ratings are awful) and now this.
    Yahoo is so poorly managed and should be avoided at all cost. Let them tank.
