Judge certifies class action accusing FedEx of discrimination

A federal judge in San Francisco has certified a class action discrimination lawsuit targeting FedEx Corporation of Memphis. At issue is allegations the delivery service paid thousands of current and former minority employees less than their white counterparts, skipped them for promotions and gave minorities poor work evaluations. The case includes an estimated ten-thousand current and former hourly workers and about one-thousand low-level management employees. A FedEx spokesman said the company was considering appealing the ruling, which the company called a "procedural decision" that does not address the case's merits. The suit was filed in 2003 by eight current and former employees. It seeks (M) millions of dollars in damages and an end to the company's alleged discriminatory practices.
