Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd. reached an out-of-court settlement Monday with two female employees who had sued the firm, alleging it discriminated against women in terms of pay and promotion.

According to the settlement reached at the Osaka High Court, the Osaka-based company agreed to pay the two women a combined 10 million yen and promote them. In July 2000, the Osaka District Court rejected the lawsuit.
