Edwards Kirby Files Class Action Discrimination Suit
Sep 23, 2019
At Edwards Kirby, we are known for taking on large corporations and fighting for our clients. Our latest class action lawsuit is no exception.
Sex-Based Pay Bias and Sexual Harassment at The Greensboro News & Record
We do not stand for gender pay bias or sexual harassment, and our most recent lawsuit takes a stand against both the Greensboro News & Record and its parent companies, Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and BH Media Group Inc.
Throughout this case, we will fight to prove that BH Media, which owns and operates 77 media outlets nationwide, has a systemic, illegal practice of paying female advertising sales employees less than their male counterparts and offering them fewer promotions.
We will also pursue the company’s accountability in failing to address sexual harassment in the workplace.
Gayla Price leads the suit with claims that she and other female coworkers were harassed by a male employee who repeatedly exposed himself to the women.
Although the perpetrator has been arrested by local police and “committed to treatment,” the lawsuit will address the larger structural issues of the business.
With the assistance of Attorney Cate Edwards, Ms. Price filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.
We look forward to fighting by Ms. Price’s side and pursuing justice on behalf of her, the underpaid female sales employees at BH Media, and all other women at the company.
