Class action suit against Greenberg Traurig settles

Suit claimed the firm underpaid women

A class action suit that claimed law firm Greenberg Traurig underpaid its women lawyers has settled, according to Thomson Reuters.

Late last year, Francine Friedman Griesing filed a complaint against the firm, claiming it violated the Equal Pay Act, a federal law that mandates employers offer equal pay for equal work, regardless of gender. In her suit Griesing said Greenberg underpaid women lawyers and fostered an “old boys club” within the firm. She brought the suit on behalf of 215 current and former Greenberg shareholders.
