Microsoft denies U.S. suggestion that diversity commitments may be illegal

Oct 6 (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp on Tuesday “emphatically” denied a suggestion in a recent letter from the U.S. Department of Labor that its recent initiative to spend $150 million on diversity and inclusion measures amounted to illegal race discrimination.

In a blog post, General Counsel Dev Stahlkopf said the denial was in response to a letter Microsoft received last week from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs.
