On January 10, 2022, Goldstein, Borgen, Dardarian & Ho, along with co-counsel, filed a motion for class certification on behalf of four plaintiffs and a proposed class of women who worked at Nike, Inc. Headquarters and allege that Nike has discriminated against them in pay, promotions, and initial job assignments on the basis of their gender. The motion seeks an order certifying a class of several thousand women based on evidence that several uniform policies and practices resulted in Nike paying women less, promoting women less often, and placing women into lower initial job assignments compared to similar men. The motion also seeks certification of intentional discrimination claims based on evidence that Nike knew about the discriminatory nature of its policies, but failed to correct them. The hearing on this motion is expected in late Spring/Summer of 2022.
