"How to Bridge That Stubborn Pay Gap" — An Excellent NYT Article

Claire Cain Miller has written what I think is a very significant article about gender pay disparity in today’s New York Times, entitled “How to Bridge That Stubborn Pay Gap.” She writes that: “More than a half-century after President John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act, the gender pay gap is still with us. Women…

“It’s Not Becoming Of A Woman” – Lawyer Sanctioned For Sexist Comment

A significant development within the legal profession is the subject of this post, and it is even, arguably, within the expansive remit of “employment discrimination.” For those of us lucky (dumb?) enough to have practiced law to an old[er] age, the sight and sound of a judge condescending to a female lawyer, commenting leeringly on her looks or…

Not many of us have come across a GINA case in our discrimination practice.  At least not yet — the law is only 5+ years old. Nonetheless, the EEOC has included GINA as one of its enforcement priorities in its Strategic Enforcement Plan (“SEP”), and it has, in fact, litigated a (small) number of such…

“Big Law” Compensation Schemes To Be Scrutinized In New Sex Discrimination Suit Against LeClairRyan

The mysterious compensation ways of Big Law – from which, thankfully, I escaped – just got LeClairRyan sued under Title VII and The Equal Pay Act.

At least in the UK, according to a recent case discussed by employment lawyer Verity Sayers of the London law firm of Nabarro LLP.

“I Thought That These Tech Companies Would Have Been More Inclusive, But They Are Way Behind"”

The New York Times reported today that Twitter has replaced its vice president for diversity and inclusion. The Times commented that the hiring of the new VP “is the latest move by a big technology company to counter the perception that, despite its claims of an egalitarian culture, the industry’s collective track record in encouraging a diverse employee…

Don't Be Chained To “Fears, Biases or Stereotypes” Against People With Disabilities

The EEOC’s Strategic Enforcement Plan (“SEP”) has, as one of its six national priorities, the elimination of barriers in recruitment and hiring.  Lately, the EEOC has seemed to focus upon deafness as a barrier to hiring — or as a reason for termination.
