Gender Discrimination

Unfortunately, gender discrimination is all too common in the workplace. Gender discrimination occurs when an employer prefers one gender over another. Often times this happens in blue collar industries where it is assumed that men are better suited to perform manual tasks. Gender discrimination is also prevalent in white collar workplaces where qualified women are routinely passed over for promotions and, instead, the job is given to a less qualified male.
Hardworking individuals should be compensated based on the quality of their work, not their gender. No matter if it is intentional or unintentional, discrimination has no place in the workplace. Seeking an aggressive attorney to fight for you is the first step in the process to recovery.
