The Walt Disney Company has systematically underpaid women, depriving female employees of more than $150m in wages in California since 2015, according to a new analysis of salary data carried out as part of a class-action lawsuit alleging widespread pay gaps at the company. ...The new statistical analysis was conducted by David Neumark [Distinguished Professor], a University of California, Irvine labor economist and pay gap expert hired by the plaintiffs. His report filed with the court said his comparisons of men’s and women’s salaries controlled for job levels, tenure and other factors that could affect pay, meaning the disparities he uncovered stemmed from gender discrimination.
