AIG Fights Swaps-Unit Pay Disclosure in Sex-Discrimination Case

American International Group Inc., citing abuse directed against traders who got bonuses after the company’s bailout, is fighting to keep pay records private from ex-employees seeking the data in a sex-discrimination lawsuit.

“Confidential treatment of this information is crucial to safeguard Financial Products’ employees’ safety and security, which has been jeopardized in the past,” lawyers for AIG said in a filing at U.S. District Court in New Haven, Connecticut, dated April 29. “Previous disclosures resulted not only in the personal harassment of employees and their families at their homes, but also threats of physical violence.”
