Investment News - Hilary Johnson

Three female advisers claim they were treated as “second-class citizens,” according to the class action

Three female advisers today filed a federal class action against Bank of America Corp. alleging sex discrimination.

The plaintiffs — Judy Calibuso, Julie Moss and Dianne Goedtel — claim that they were discriminated against as financial advisers working at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in the opportunities made available to them, including account distributions; their pay; and the professional support they were provided.

The plaintiffs also claim that they were retaliated against when they complained about their treatment. They are seeking injunctive and declaratory relief, an award of back and front pay, and compensatory and punitive damages.

The suit was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
