A sex discrimination lawsuit against KPMG by five former female employees will be allowed to move forward, according to a judge. The suit was filed against KPMG, a consulting and accounting firm, after the women claimed that they were denied pay raises and promotions. A United States District Judge rejected KPMG's claims to dismiss the claims after the women asserted that they were subject to a hostile work environment where women were left lagging behind in pay. The suit seeks $350 million in lost salaries and benefits.
