Fighting Gender Discrimination In The Workplace
Federal and state laws prohibit employers from discriminating against an employee or applicant for employment because of his or her sex in regard to hiring, termination promotion, compensation, job training or any other term, condition or privilege of employment. Both men and women are protected by these laws that proscribe employers from preferring one gender over another in employment decisions; engaging in gender stereotyping, sexual harassment or pregnancy discrimination; and providing unequal pay or permitting/perpetuating the existence of a hostile work environment.
Although many believe that gender discrimination is no longer prevalent in the modern workplace, the unfortunate truth is that some companies, organizations and government entities still treat certain individuals differently from others on account of their gender. While proving the existence of such discrimination in court can be challenging, our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to ask the right questions, find the right documents and provide you with the best chance possible to show that you were treated unfairly by your employer.
