A Prominent Fort Worth Resident Files $110 Million Gender Discrimination Suit Against Alcon Laboratris Inc

A Fort Worth resident filed a $110 million gender discrimination suit against Alcon Laboratris Inc. claiming the eye-care products company routinely denied female employees equal pay and promotion opportunities. Elyse Dickerson, wife of the curator at the Kimbell Art Museum, and Susan Orr, claim in the suit that Alcon has a "boy's club atmosphere" that's hostile to women. The new suit claims that 12 of 15 members of Alcon's executive leadership team are men, including the global head of Alcon, Jeff George, as well as the chief financial officer, all five region presidents and the senior vice president for human resources. Women make up fewer than 15% of vice presidents and senior directors in Novartis' Alcon division. A current Executive Leadership Team member repeatedly arranged for prostitutes to meet with doctors viewed by the company as "key opinion leaders" but was never disciplined or demoted for doing so, the suit says. Male senior leaders invited younger male employees to visit strip clubs, play golf, and drink at bars, but female employees were rarely invited, the lawsuit says. Dickerson and Orr say in the suit that the company violated the U.S. Equal Pay Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits gender discrimination by employers. Dickerson says in the suit that she was fired from her job as a global director for complaining about what she saw as inequities at the company. She is seeking $10 million and her job back. Orr, a research scientist, says the lack of promotions forced her to resign. She's seeking at least $100 million on behalf of a proposed class of thousands of Alcon employees who are women.
