Last week, former Bayer vice president Irene Laurora filed suit against the company for wrongful termination. Per the lawsuit, a pregnant colleague of Laurora’s was pulled from an important project “solely because she intended to take her legally protected maternity leave,” and Laurora stood up for her colleague’s rights. Laurora claims she was fired because of her actions. This is not the first time Bayer has been sued for discrimination. In 2011, 10 women filed suit against the company for discrimination and retaliation.
