Bayer's Discrimination Lawsuit Now Requires Extra-Strength Cure
Date:5/25/2011

NEWARK, N.J., May 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Just days after the one year anniversary of winning a $250 million verdict for female sales representatives at Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, the law firm of Sanford Wittels & Heisler LLP filed a nearly identical class action on behalf of female sales representatives at Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals.

When Ms. Celske raised questions about the lack of advancement opportunities, her male manager commented that opportunities were set aside to support a lower-performing male colleague's career development.  When she asked what about her own career development, the male manager derisively scoffed "what about it?"  

Katherine Kimpel, lead counsel for the plaintiffs and the class and partner at Sanford Wittels & Heisler, LLP, commented "Bayer's failure to recognize, promote, and otherwise treat Ms. Celske fairly is illegal.  It is also unwise; even by Bayer's own metrics, Ms. Celske is a
