Finn v. Booz Allen Hamilton (Sex Discrimination)
Molly Finn, a partner and 24-year veteran of Booz Allen Hamilton, filed a lawsuit claiming she was fired because of her sex and/or family responsibilities and that the company intentionally excludes women from the highest-level leadership positions. The lawsuit, which named four senior male executives as defendants, alleged that Booz Allen’s corporate leadership maintains a “glass ceiling” that excludes women from “the top echelon of the Firm where Booz Allen’s most important strategic and operational decisions are made.” The lawsuit also alleged that male partners are paid more than comparable female partners and are afforded better advancement opportunities. In October 2013, it was reported that the lawsuit was settled.
