Case Type: Gender Discrimination
Company: Jones Day
Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP represents Katrina Henderson in her race and gender discrimination claims against Jones Day.
Ms. Henderson is a former associate in Jones Day’s New York office who alleges that she was subjected to discriminatory treatment, pay, and wrongful termination based on her identity as an African-American woman. The Complaint lays out how, in contrast to her White and male colleagues, Ms. Henderson was consistently overpoliced and under-supported by Jones Day, a pattern which led partners to deprive her of substantive work, mentorship, and equal pay and ultimately to push her out of the Firm.
This matter is currently in litigation in the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia.
