Ellen Pao's lawyer: Kleiner Perkins Just Fired Her—And We're Filing A Wrongful-Termination Complaint [USA]

Kleiner Perkins has fired Ellen Pao, the partner who recently sued the firm for sexual harassment, her lawyer has confirmed...Pao is filing a complaint with California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing, a first step towards adding a claim of wrongful termination...Here's Kleiner's statement: Because of longstanding issues having no relationship or bearing on the litigation, Kleiner approached Ms. Pao to facilitate her transition, over an extended period of time, out of the firm. The proposed terms, that did not require Ms. Pao to waive any legal rights or claims, are generous, fair and intended to support Ms. Pao in a successful career transition.
