How do I know if I have a gender discrimination claim?
Gender discrimination can be defined as anything that makes you feel unsafe or singled out based on your gender. You might feel discriminated against if your entire workplace is a different gender than you and they are frequently engaging in inappropriate behavior. That might include lewd jokes. It also could be a certain tone that coworkers of a different gender use when addressing you. One sure way to know if you are being discriminated against based on your gender is to discuss the details of your case with our California gender discrimination lawyers.
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 are 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.
There are many different ways you may face gender discrimination. Here are a few common scenarios:
- You got passed up for a job because the employer did not think you would fit into the male dominated workplace
- You get paid less than a male coworker with the same position
- You did not get promoted because your employer thought your staff wouldn’t respect your authority in the role
- You get a different workload than your male coworkers because of your sex
- Being told to wear a different uniform than male coworkers, especially clothing that is revealing
