We represent employees who have been discriminated against by an employer because of their sex or gender. Gender discrimination occurs when an employer treats an employee differently because of his or her gender. Gender discrimination may include biased or sexist comments concerning one’s gender, inappropriate language in the workplace, and condescending treatment towards members of one particular sex. For instance, an employer whose statements or conduct towards an employee reveals a misguided belief that one sex is less capable of performing a job than another may have violated federal anti-discrimination laws against gender discrimination. Similarly, an employer whose statements or conduct reveals a belief that one sex is less deserving of equal pay for the same job, may have also engaged in unlawful gender discrimination.
Gender discrimination can take many forms so it is important to have your employment matter reviewed by an experienced employment discrimination attorney. Contact our office to learn more about your potential gender discrimination claims.
