Plaintiffs seek to expand suit against MSLGroup | Discrimination Lawsuit

Plaintiffs in the gender discrimination lawsuit against MSLGroup and parent Publicis Groupe have filed a motion to give their case a new class status that would open participation in the suit to hundreds more women. If successful, about 200 to 250 women could join the suit in addition to the 33 female employees already pursuing their claims.  The class action would include female employees who had worked at MSL’s US offices at the SVP or VP level; had taken family and medical, pregnancy, or maternity leave; or had worked a reduced or flexible schedule from 2008 until the date of judgment.  Full article.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination in compensation and other terms and conditions of employment based on sex. Sex discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of that person’s sex.  The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.  Both Title VII and the Equal Pay Act prohibit employers from retaliating against an employee who complains about pay discrimination or files a charge of discrimination with the EEOC.  Please visit the EEOC’s website for further information:
