(Reuters) - Elon Musk's SpaceX has been sued by a female former employee who claims the rocket and satellite company pays and promotes women and minorities less than white men.

California law prohibits employers from paying workers less than colleagues who perform"substantially similar work" based on their sex, race or ethnicity. SpaceX raised Foltz's pay to $95,000 only after it was required to include the information in job posts, according to the complaint. The U.S. Department of Justice filed a complaint in August accusing SpaceX of refusing to hire refugees and asylees who lack U.S. citizenship. SpaceX has denied wrongdoing and last month filed a counter-suit seeking to block the government's case.
