U.S. Department of Labor Files Lawsuit Accusing Palantir Technologies for Systematically Discriminating against Asian Job Applicants

The U.S. Department of Labor has filed a lawsuit accusing Palantir Technologies for systematically discriminating against Asian job applicants. The unusual lawsuit, which comes as Silicon Valley is grappling with broader criticism for a lack of diversity, claims Palantir 'routinely eliminated' Asian job candidates during the resume-screening and telephone-interview stages of the company's hiring process. The claims are based on a statistical analysis conducted by federal officials responsible for making sure government contractors comply with anti-discrimination rules. Palantir denied the allegations and said it will contest the suit. It argued in a statement that the government's case 'relies on a narrow and flawed statistical analysis relating to three job descriptions from 2010 to 2011'. The federal lawsuit against Palantir, however, focuses on Asian job candidates because they applied in relatively large numbers. The suit was filed with the Labor Department's Office of Administrative Law Judges, which is a quasi-judicial system within the department.
