Fighting Against Discrimination Based On Gender, Sexual Orientation Or Pregnancy
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
- Pay and benefits
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.
