Upturn and Gupta Wessler file EEOC charge against Meta

Mitra Ebadolahi and Peter Romer-Friedman


Upturn and Gupta Wessler represent Real Women in Trucking in their charge with the EEOC to investigate Meta for systemic gender and age discrimination in advertising trucking jobs on Facebook. In this charge, we demonstrate, with actual ads that employers have published on Facebook, that when Facebook decides which people will receive job ads within the audience selected by the employer, Facebook disproportionately steers those job ads away from users based on their gender and age.
