California Gender Discrimination Lawyers

Minorities such as members of the LGBTQ2+ community and women make up almost half of America’s workforce. These individuals have the same right to go to work every day and earn an honest living while being free from discrimination as anyone else. Sadly, too many face discriminatory remarks and are the victims of unfair employment practices. Harassment and hostile work environments are still all too present in many industries, and many women continue to feel the effects of the wage gap. Members of the LGBTQ2+ are sometimes denied opportunities such as promotions based on their status.

Under federal law, gender discrimination is prohibited in the workplace but that does not mean it never occurs. If you have been treated unfairly in your workplace, it is important to speak to one of our California gender discrimination lawyers at Burris, Nisenbaum, Curry & Lacy.

Gender discrimination happens in several different ways. It is not always intentional but there are times when deliberate discrimination takes place. Some of the most common types of gender discrimination are as follows:

  • Not allowing people of a certain gender to take part in important assignments and projects
  • Paying people of one gender more than employees of other genders, particularly when the employees are performing similar duties
  • Acting protective of a certain gender in a manner that is unwelcome and not asked for
  • Not taking people of a specific gender seriously in some industries including science, finance, and construction
  • Allowing or creating a hostile work environment
  • Failing to respond, or responding inappropriately, to sexual harassment complaints
  • Enacting policies that exclude certain genders and that are unnecessary
  • Considering gender when promoting an employee over another, particularly when each has a similar skillset and experience

Gender discrimination is prohibited under federal law. Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, discriminating against certain protected classes, including gender, is against the law. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act, as well as the Equal Pay Act, are just two of many other federal and state statutes that prohibit gender discrimination.

If your rights have been violated and you have experienced gender discrimination at work, it is important to speak to one of our California gender discrimination lawyers at Burris, Nisenbaum, Curry & Lacy. While the laws are in place to protect you, they also only apply to certain employers. For example, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act applies only to employers who employ 15 or more workers. Our lawyers can advise on the law that applies to your case, and help you claim the full compensation you are entitled to.

Gender discrimination is not only hurtful, but it can also result in actual losses. At Burris, Nisenbaum, Curry & Lacy, our California gender discrimination lawyers have the necessary experience to help employees claim the compensation they deserve, and we will put that experience to work for you.
