Three more women are taking a stand against pay discrimination at Farmers Insurance. In the last two weeks, Angela Storey, a former employee, and Keever Rhodes and Sandra Carter, current employees, joined the lawsuit against Farmers.
Coates v. Farmers Group, Inc., et al., Case No. 5:15-cv-01913 (N.D. Cal.), is brought as a putative class action on behalf of women attorneys employed by Farmers nationwide. The suit alleges that Farmers, the third largest insurance company in the United States, routinely pays its female attorney-employees significantly lower wages than those paid to its male attorney-employees performing the same work.
Attorney Lori Andrus was quoted in a story about the lawsuit appearing in the Los Angeles Times on June 26, 2015. “There is a favoritism toward men. Men are given more opportunities, bigger cases, and are promoted faster and given more raises. And that story is repeated.”
Female attorney employees of Farmers Insurance are welcome to contact Andrus Anderson LLP for a free, no-obligation review of their case.
