Gender Sex Discrimination Lawyer California

Gender/Sex discrimination in the workplace can be one of the easiest things to spot — or the hardest. It all depends on the situation. Despite increased attention to gender equality, gender biases remain. Below is a list of the most common examples of gender/sex discrimination at work:

  • Demotion
  • Unequal Pay
  • Failure to Promote
  • Wrongful Termination
  • Receiving Poor Performance
  • Scrutiny/Comments Over Appearance

The most important thing to know about gender/sex discrimination, is that it requires an “adverse employment action” to be considered discrimination under the law. Therefore, actions like termination, demotion, failure to promote, etc. – things that adversely affect your job – need to have occurred as a result of the discriminatory treatment.
