A woman claims in a Facebook post she was turned down from a technical job at Cleveland-based software startup OnShift because she was dressed too provocatively in her interview — despite the fact she was extremely qualified.
The post, a screenshot of which was circulated on Twitter, contains some explicit language. We’ve edited her name out for the sake of her privacy:
If true, this would mean that OnShift, a venture-backed startup that makes software for senior care professionals with $US14.1 million in funding, discriminated against a qualified candidate on the basis of her appearance.
Multiple requests for comment to OnShift have gone unanswered, but a LinkedIn search at least bears out the claim that the company’s development team is all male.
