I hate epli

Yes. Same question, L1. Why do you hate EPLI? Just curious.

The turn and burn nature of EPLI will help you at most Plaintiff's firms.

Also, like EPLI, YMMV wildly depending on the firm and partner you work with. Is it mostly single plaintiff or class action? Rank and file employees or executives? Some plaintiff's lawyers are empathetic true believers and you could pull 9-5 hours with actual time off, etc; some of them are megalomaniacs with a sadistic bent for their associates who will fire you when you leave at 7pm to take the vacation you scheduled months earlier, put on her calendar, and reminded her about 5 times the prior week. Or so I've heard.

Hi! First off, I know none of this constitutes legal advice, etc., but I’d like some outside perspectives and advice here.

My wife found out she makes ~25% less that her male co-worker did when he was her level of seniority, and they have the same job responsibilities and the exact same credentials (same undergrad, masters program, etc.); he now makes 50% more than she does, but has 3 more years of WE, so to me that’s not as applicable.

Does she have a claim here? Need any other details?
