Re: Lisa Klerman

Lisa Klerman was quoted on the rising number of lawsuits by women alleging inequality in pay compared to men and on the challenges in presenting such cases to a court. “If it merits a differential in pay, then the employer can pay the different rate without running afoul of the equal-pay laws,” Klerman said.
