Sexual Discrimination Lawyer
In 1964, the Civil Rights Acts was passed, making it illegal for any employer to discriminate based on race or gender in regards to terms or conditions of employment. While we have certainly come a long way since then, sexual and racial discrimination still takes place to this day. Unfortunately, many women and even some men have found it difficult to advance in their careers due to individual and institutional attitudes about gender. Attorneys at Rad Law Firm are committed to representing victims of sexual discrimination, helping them to obtain the compensation they deserve. Sexual discrimination takes place when an employer treats a current or prospective employee differently based on the fact that individual is either a woman or a man. The law requires that all males and females be treated equally when it comes to all phases of the employment process, including recruiting, hiring, firing, placement, promotion, advancement, job training, job assignment, compensation, working conditions, layoffs, and benefits. If you have been a victim of sexual discrimination in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Brownsville, or Beverly Hills, contact an attorney from Rad Law Firm today.
Types of Sexual Discrimination
The law states that employers or any person of authority cannot make decisions based upon stereotypes, presumption about abilities, traits, or performance on the basis of an individual’s sex. Not only is it illegal to discriminate based on sex, but it is also against the law to discriminate because an employee is married or single. It should also be noted that discrimination in the workplace can be committed against an employee or an applicant for employment. Here are a few examples of sexual discrimination to give you a better idea of what, exactly, this may look like:
- The employer provides benefits to the wives of male employees but the same benefits are not an option for the husbands of female employees
- The employer refuses to hire or promote an employee because, as a woman, the person is ‘not as tough as a man’
- An employee is given stellar reviews, but is frequently passed over for promotions that are then filled by less qualified and less senior individuals of the opposite sex
- Members of the opposite sex are paid more than you
These are just a couple of examples of what sexual discrimination may look like in the workplace. Sexual harassment is another common form of this type of discrimination and should not be taken lightly. If you are the victim of sexual discrimination, please contact an attorney from Rad Law Firm today.
