Goldman Sachs is getting sued a lot these days … and not just by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Charlotte Hanna claims the embattled investment bank marginalized her after she had two children, effectively barring her from returning to full-time work as a vice president. In a lawsuit charging violations of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and the , Hanna says taking the bank’s offer of an “off ramp” for executives who wanted to have children derailed her career.
A bank program allows executives to work a reduced schedule while their children are young, with the implicit promise they will be able to resume their full-time positions once the kids get older.
But Hanna claims that there was no “on-ramp” that effectively allowed her to return to full-time employment. When she returned to work, she claims the bank gave her less and less prestigious positions, and eventually dismissed her.
Hanna originally filed her complaint with the EEOC, but the commission elected not to pursue the case.
