“Wellens V Daiichi Sankyo” – Sanford Heisler Takes on Another Gender Cause

In gender discrimination disputes, businesses don’t want themselves up against the law firm Sanford Heisler.  That firm has become the premier brand in representing plaintiffs in class action lawsuits alleging gender bias – and winning.

Japanese pharmaceutical firm Daiichi Sankyo might be very nervous today.  Yesterday, on behalf of its lead plaintiffs including Sara Wellens, Sandford Heisler filed “Wellens v Daiichi Sankyo.”  Here you can read the complaint.

Allegedly female pharma reps were positioned as props to make the sale, but then not rewarded as were males for achievements.  They supposedly received fewer promotions and penalized when they became pregnant.
