12/7/2016 – Filed pregnancy discrimination lawsuit against Bayer


Mr. Wigdor represented former Bayer Vice President Dr. Irene Laurora in a pregnancy retaliation lawsuit against the company. Dr. Laurora was awarded “Working Mother of the Year” in light of her dedication to helping new mothers overcome the discriminatory environment in the corporate workforce. However, as alleged, when Dr. Laurora spoke out about Bayer’s decision to discriminate against a pregnant colleague about to go on maternity leave, she was retaliated against, and ultimately terminated. The colleague in question had been removed from her leadership position after informing the company that she would be taking her legally-protected maternity leave, as allege din the Complaint.
