Microsoft has ditched a clause in its temporary staff contracts that required employees to sign away any potential gains from pending lawsuits.
The move follows a statement by a judge overseeing one of two ongoing class action lawsuits that the language used in the software giant?s contracts was outrageously arrogant.
Temporary workers are seeking millions of dollars in damages from Microsoft and claim that it treats them like full time members of staff in every respect apart from compensation. As a result, they are seeking payments, which include gains from employee stock purchase schemes.
Microsoft, however, maintains it is not responsible for providing benefits to temporary staff.
