9/12/2011 – Filed pregnancy discrimination lawsuit against Deutsche Bank

Mr. Wigdor represented Kelley Voelker, a former Vice President at Deutsche Bank, who was fired after filing a pregnancy discrimination lawsuit. Ms. Voelker’s lawsuit, which received press attention and notoriety when it was first filed in federal court, details her efforts to break through the Bank’s glass ceiling, overcome “mommy-tracking,” and obtain a long-overdue promotion. After being told that nobody in her group would be affected by layoffs at the Bank, Ms. Voelker was informed, after she complained just weeks prior about further retaliation, that she was the only employee from her group among the approximately 500 employees to be affected as part of this supposedly wide-ranging reduction in force.
