Last Friday, Rochelle Cohen filed a lawsuit in federal court for the Southern District of New York. The suit claims Ms. Cohen was discriminated against as a result of her age and gender by her former employer, the Bank of New York-Mellon.
The bank claims Ms. Cohen's position in the Private Wealth group was eliminated despite Ms. Cohen being employed with the Bank for more than ten years and maintaining many significant client relationships.
One of the plaintiff's claims is that she was unjustly compensated as compared to her male colleagues. Ms. Cohen claims that the male employees were paid more than the female employees for comparable work.
