Gender Discrimination

Employment Gender Discrimination Attorneys

In 2011, gender identity and gender expression were included in California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) as protected classes. While it has taken too long to instill legal ramifications, discrimination against employees and employment applicants based on their gender affiliation is now prohibited. If you have been subject to harassment and/or discrimination in the workplace because of your gender, contact an employment gender discrimination attorney at 415-981-1850. Examples of sex discrimination include:

  • Failure to interview an applicant based on gender
  • Denial of equal treatment
  • Continuous workplace harassment by co-workers and/or supervisors
  • Denial of fair salary
  • Denial of employee benefits
  • Denial of adequate training
  • Refusal of promotions
  • Denial of merit-based raises or bonuses
  • Denial of family, medical or maternity leave
  • Demotion
  • Termination

Protecting Your Rights

As an employee, you have the right to be treated fairly by your employer. If you believe that your employer may have violated the law in its dealings with you, contact us to seek advice from an employment law professional. We are happy to meet with you one on one to discuss your case and provide you with guidance so that you can take measures to resolve your employment dispute.

Workplace racial discrimination matters are taken on contingency, and you will never be required to pay attorney’s fees unless we obtain favorable results on your behalf. Employer retaliation matters are handled on a contingency fee basis. Therefore, if we do not obtain a monetary settlement or verdict in your favor, you will not pay any attorney’s fees.

Don’t be afraid to stand up for your rights as an employee. Call today for a free initial consultation and a review of your case. Call us at 415-981-1850 or contact us here.
