Dell is now being sued by multiple former female top executives on the grounds of discrimination. The plaintiffs are claiming that the discrimination occurred after the company announced a series of job cuts earlier this year. Both female and older former Dell employees are requesting a total of $500 million in damages, declaring that they were picked out and systematically discriminated against.  Dell is denying all of the accusations made by the women and states that they believe the claims of the suit are without merit. Dell spokesman, David Frink, also affirmed that the company does not tolerate any form of discrimination regarding employment, and will vigorously defend any claims that they are not acting in accordance with the law or their policies.
