Fighting Against Discrimination Based On Gender, Sexual Orientation Or Pregnancy

Work environments have come a long way in accepting people for who they are and rewarding workers based on skill level and job performance. However, workplace discrimination based on gender and sexual orientation still occurs at an alarming rate.
Jay S. Rothman & Associates protects the rights of Southern California workers who face bias regarding hiring, promotion or pay. Under the direction of attorney Jay Rothman, our team brings together more than five decades of experience in all areas of discrimination based on gender and sexual orientation, as well as sexual harassment.

Identifying Gender And Sexual Discrimination

Federal and state laws prohibit discriminating against an employee based on sex or gender identification. This includes laws prohibiting paying employees of the opposite sex different wages for substantially similar work. These laws protect individuals from discrimination involving:

  • Hiring practices
  • Job training
  • Promotions
  • Pay and benefits
  • Termination

Some acts of discriminatory behavior on the part of an employer are blatant, while others are more subtle and difficult to determine if a law has actually been broken. An employee must show that a practice has a significantly discriminatory impact. Consulting with a knowledgeable employment law attorney like those at Jay S. Rothman & Associates is an important step if you feel you are being subjected to workplace discrimination or sexual harassment.
