According to Buffalo News and LA Times: “Chapman, 59, and three other top female managers have filed a class-action lawsuit against Dell, alleging age and sex discrimination in the company’s termination of 8,000 employees over the last year.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in San Francisco, is one of only a few so far emanating from the mass layoffs sweeping the United States.”

“Analysis of the 8,000 employees Dell laid off over the last year will show that women and people over 40 were disproportionately affected, said Steve Wittels, a founding partner of the Sanford Wittels & Heisler law firm, which filed the class-action lawsuit seeking $500 million in damages.

Dell executives deny the lawsuit’s allegations. ”

Shares of Dell (NASDAQ:DELL) dropped 1.06 percent to $10.23 on Tuesday 12-30-2008.
