Gender discrimination in the workplace is Illegal in New York, as elsewhere, and can have a destructive influence on your career as well as your emotional health.
At Eisenberg & Baum, our Manhattan-based employment discrimination attorneys provide experienced representation and determined advocacy for people who have been discriminated against in the workplace. We have extensive experience as trial lawyers and we know how to achieve results for our clients.
State and federal laws protect workers from gender discrimination. Unfortunately, many victims of sexual harassment are reluctant to come forth with a claim, fearing retaliation and job loss.
Gender Discrimination claims are broken down into three general categories:
Claims in which a company refuses to hire a man or woman because of his or her gender, or refuses to promote a person for that reason, or denies other types of job benefits (like sick leave, vacations, pension plans, work schedules, etc.)
Claims in which an employee is fired because of her or his gender.
Claims involving inappropriate behavior in the workplace, including disparaging or sexist comments about one gender or the other or abusive treatment aimed at only one gender.
If you have been subjected to gender discrimination at work, it is important to remember that the law is on your side. Pursuing a gender discrimination lawsuit can hold responsible parties to account, protect yourself and others from future mistreatment, and help you obtain compensation for the hardships you have faced.
