How do I know if I have a gender discrimination claim?
One issue that comes up often is the fact that there are some employees that are receiving preferential treatment versus other employees. Typically, we’ll get a call from an individual that says that they’re being treated differently at work and they’re trying to figure out why. Sometimes, it’s a woman that feels that the men in the office are given better assignments or better leads or a woman believes that her title and her job responsibilities are just the same as male counterparts, but she believes, or she knows, or she suspects that they actually receive more money than her for doing the same type of work.
There’s other times in which people feel that, because of their race, they’re being treated differently than everybody else. This might involve compensation, promotional opportunities, or just be the type of work that’s actually being assigned. Discrimination in California is unlawful assuming it’s based off of a protected class: gender, race, national origin, sexual orientation. Also, they can’t discriminate or retaliate against you because you complained about not being treated fairly at work.
If you’ve worked for a company or you’re currently working for a company and you feel that you’re being subject to discrimination or you’ve been retaliated against because you’ve complained about discrimination, it’s important for you to find a law firm that can answer your questions and represent you if you make a decision to file a lawsuit. If you have any questions regarding discrimination in the workplace for whatever reason or retaliation for complaining about discrimination in the workplace, feel free to give me a call. I am happy to answer any questions that you may have regarding those issues.
