Sanofi-Aventis hit with discrimination suit

Four women are suing Sanofi-Aventis for sex discrimination in U.S. federal court. The women say they were passed over for promotions, were paid less than their male colleagues and--red-flag language alert--were subjected to "sexually abusive" working environments.

Originally filed by one woman in May, the suit added three plaintiffs yesterday and now is seeking class-action status. The company denies the claims, saying its female employees are treated fairly and lawfully.
