More than 230 internal complaints of harassment and discrimination within Microsoft were handled in a "lackluster" way by the business, according to documents made public yesterday in a class action lawsuit.
Microsoft has said that corrective action might be taken even if no policy violation was found, and that the person who filed the complaint might not be informed.
In the past, Microsoft argued that the number of complaints filed by women should be kept undisclosed because publicizing the number could discourage women at the company from filing complaints in the future.

Microsoft said in court filings that the plaintiffs did not identify practices that impact enough employees to warrant a class action, and that it spends more than $55 million per year to promote diversity and inclusion.
A Microsoft spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment.
