Dedicated lawyer handles a variety of cases involving gender discrimination
In California, it is against the law to discriminate based on sex, gender, gender identity or gender expression. Just a few examples of possible gender discrimination include:
- If you are a woman, not receiving the same pay for the same work as a man receives
- Being passed over for raises or promotions because you are transgender
- Being fired from your job while out on pregnancy leave, which may also give you grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit
- Being sexually harassed at work
If you believe you have been subject to gender discrimination in the workplace, my employment law firm will scrutinize all the facts in your matter and advise you about your potential options going forward.
Resourceful attorney takes on employers who target workers based on gender
Being unfairly targeted at work strictly because of gender can cause anger, frustration and low self-esteem that potentially leads to reduced job performance and can affect your financial well-being. You have rights in the workplace, including the right to be treated equally to everyone else. By law, employers cannot discriminate based on gender when it comes to:
- Hiring and firing
- Recruiting for new employees
- Layoffs and employment recalls
- Pay and benefits
- Training opportunities
You have recourse if you have experienced gender discrimination. The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission investigate claims of workplace discrimination. You have three years from the last incident of discrimination to file a complaint with the DFEH and 180 days to file with the EEOC. and pursue back wages, lost benefits and other remedies. If your complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction, you then have the right to bring a gender discrimination lawsuit. I will guide you through the agency filing process and assist you in bringing a legal claim if that becomes the only option.
