Other Pay Discrimination Claims
Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint alleges multiple claims of gender discrimination. The Court’s decision authorizing notice only addresses one of those claims – her claim under the Equal Pay Act.
Defendants SIU School of Medicine and SIU Healthcare deny any wrongdoing.
But Dr. Sajida Ahad’s expert – D.C. Sharp, Ph.D. – analyzed SIU’s compensation data from 2010-2016 and found female physician professors received at least $12,000/year less annually than comparable males. The parties’ expert reports are available here:
Dr. Sharp’s Report – 48-3 Exhibit C
Dr. Song’s Report – 48-4 Exhibit D
Dr. Sharp’s Reply – 48-6 Exhibit F
Opinion and Order
Amended Complaint – 31 – P
