International Business Machines Corp.

Jodie Ross of St. Albans worked at IBM as a manager for 23 years at its facilities in Fishkill and Essex Junction, NY. She filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against IBM for allegedly treating her differently than male counterparts. Ross' allegations arose from a company audit in January 2004 where managers accused her of inappropriate conduct. She created a checklist of procedures her department followed to track its inventory, then signed and dated the document for that year and two previous years. IBM contended the backdating was designed to mislead the auditor, but according to Rose, she dated the paperwork simply to show that the procedures were in place during those years. In a one-sentence filing dated January 4, the US District Court in Burlington announced an agreement and ended the gender discrimination case. Although the financial terms of the settlement were not disclosed, Ross and IBM agreed to pay their own legal fees and costs. (Jan-10-07) [BURLINGTON FREE PRESS: IBM DISCRIMINATION]
