TELG Client Sues Federal Agency for Gender Pay Discrimination

(Reuters) – A former Morgan, Lewis & Bockius attorney who now works at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp (FDIC) in San Francisco has sued the federal agency for pay discrimination, claiming she is under-compensated compared to her male counterparts.

Megan Borovicka filed a lawsuit in Washington, D.C., federal court on Friday saying she was offered a starting base salary of just over $120,000 in 2014, below the starting salaries of her male coworkers.

In her eight years of working at the FDIC, Borovicka says she consistently had a lower base salary than all but two of her male counterparts.

She also claimed in the filing that she was subject to sexist comments from her superiors.

“We look forward to bringing these comparisons before a jury — and to seeing whether the FDIC cares to defend its bias, not to mention the offensive and discriminatory comments made to Megan by management,” said Anita Mazumdar Chambers, a principal of The Employment Law Group and one of Borovicka’s attorneys.
