WASHINGTON — Lawyers for a group of 15 current and former female employees are seeking class action status for a suit against Sterling Jewelers Inc., which charges the retailer with engaging in a pattern of widespread sex discrimination by denying promotions and equal pay to women.
The suit was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in New York. The law firm representing the women, Cohen, Milstein, Hausfeld & Toll P.L.L.C., revealed the lawsuit here Wednesday with four former employees of Sterling, which operates under store names such as Jared, Kay Jewelers and Belden Jewelers.
