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.

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
