A U.S. Labor Dept. judge last week dismissed a suit the agency brought against Analogic over alleged pay discrimination.
The Labor Dept. sued Analogic in October 2016, alleging that it paid female assembly workers at its Peabody, Mass., headquarters less than their male counterparts after a compliance review by its Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs.
In a March 22 decision, Administrative Law Judge Colleen Geraghty dismissed the case, ruling that the OFCCP failed to prove that the alleged discrimination took place.
The office “failed to identify the employment practice causing the alleged pay disparity and Analogic successfully challenged the methodology and findings of OFCCP’s statistical evidence,” Geraghty wrote, noting the company’s successful challenge to an OFCCP expert’s statistical analysis with its own review of the numbers.
In June 2018 Altaris Capital Partners closed a $1.1 billion buyout of Analogic after the imaging device maker’s prolonged search for a suitor.
