Local New York City Electronics Retailer Hit With Sex Discrimination Suit

A New York based electronic store, B&H, is accused by four employees of gender discrimination after the employees sought positions as salespeople and were all denied. The three former workers and one current employee claim that B&H refuses to have female salespeople on the floor, relegating them to other positions and only promoting men.

The suit claims that when the lead plaintiff declared her interest in a sales position at B&H, and was rebuffed by other employees saying that the company does not hire women for those positions.

The store had recently paid warehouse workers over $4 million dollars in a settlement stemming from a suit over discrimination and failure to promote. The popular electronic store seems to have numerous problems concerning equal employment opportunities and civil rights.

Have any of you been to B&H and seen a female salesperson?
