How We Handle Gender Discrimination CasesEven with significant workplace reform, employers still find ways to unequally pay female workers. The reasons aren’t quite known, but nonetheless, doing so breaks EPA (Equal Pay Act) mandates. California and federal laws can work collectively in situations where gender disparity is happening alongside racial bias and disability discrimination, for example. As we view each case individually, even taking class action suits, all facts are dissected and cross-referenced to build an ironclad case. Any legally required complaints must be filed with EEOC, however, because this important step could get cases thrown out for procedural violations and a defendant’s claim of unfairness. Women no longer ‘have a place in society and the home; they deserve equal rights to earn fair wages based on equal work performed and commensurate experience. Expect our gender discrimination attorney to force employers to compensate claims based on:
- An employer’s negligent treatment of women’s wages for whatever reason.
- An employee who has repeatedly asked for raises but is denied based solely on their gender
- Employees who’ve changed genders are being disallowed similar pay and benefits as those who don’t undergo sex-change operations.
- A woman being passed over for a promotion given to a lesser qualified man, or fired in lieu of a male being hired in her spot.
- Interviewer asking women her timeline for bearing children.
- Managers telling women to either wear more provocative clothing or get demoted.
