Two Women Win Lawsuit Against Virginia Tech

A federal jury in Roanoke has decided that Virginia Tech discriminated against two women who worked in the university’s development office. The women claimed that when they worked in the development office from 2006 to 2008, they were paid less than men who held similar positions. The women also alleged that when they complained about the unequal pay, they faced retaliation from superiors.

The university claimed in its defense that the different levels of pay were not related to gender but to work experience. The university also stated that no retaliation took place.

The jury awarded one plaintiff $86,000 and the other woman received $15,000.
