Con Edison has agreed to a settlement of widespread sex discrimination charges filed by a class of over 300 female employees.

The company agreed to reserve $3.8 million for payments to women who worked in field positions between 2006 and 2014. The women claim they were denied training, assigned menial tasks, refused access to classes necessary for promotions, not provided tools in situations where male co-workers were supplied them, denied private restroom facilities and subjected to disparate and excessive discipline as compared to male co-workers.

When the women complained to Con Edison management, they claim the company retaliated against them.
