UPS Ordered to Pay $27,280 In Gender Discrimination Suit
In the case Muniz v. United Parcel Service Inc a jury awarded $27,280 to an United Parcel Service Inc. employee who alleged she was demoted because of her gender. In 2008, Kim Muniz, then a package division manager, claimed she was demoted two job grades on account of being a female. She further contended that she was treated differently than male UPS employees who were in the same or similar position as her. UPS argued that Muniz’s demotion was due to poor performance, including her failure to achieve the goals set in her performance improvement plan. Muniz currently remains employed by UPS as an operations manager at one job grade lower than she held prior to her demotion. Want to know what a person has to prove to win a discrimination lawsuit?
