If you believe your employer discriminated against you because of your gender, contact us. We can help. We have offices conveniently located in Columbus, Cleveland, and Massillon.
What is gender discrimination?
Gender discrimination cases can vary significantly - from blatant discrimination on the basis of gender to more subtle forms of sex discrimination - and are very dependent on each individual employee's circumstances. Examples can include:
- Failing to hire an individual because she is a woman.
- Promoting a less experienced man instead of a more experienced woman.
- Paying a man more money than a woman with the same skills and experiences (a violation of the Equal Pay Act).
- Giving men larger raises than women who have the same job and the same level of skills and experience.
- Unwanted sexual advances at work by a supervisor or co-worker.
- Refusing to hire a transgender person.
- Giving women poor job performance reviews for not being "feminine" enough.
There are many other ways in which employees can face gender discrimination in the workplace. If something seems wrong, contact us right away. We can help.
How we can help you fight back
