Sex or gender discrimination is generally illegal, and can cause injury by denying jobs, equal pay, benefits, promotions or other things associated with successful employment. By treating you differently in the workplace specifically because you are physically or biologically a woman or man, an employer demonstrates “sexual” discrimination. Doing the same thing based on behavioral characteristics (“masculinity” or “femininity”) is “gender” discrimination.
Even if there is no direct threat to your job, sexual harassment can also be considered a form of discrimination. Speak with a lawyer at Holman Schiavone, LLC. Please call us today at (816) 399-5149.
The Right Legal Action for Your Unique Case
The impact that sexual discrimination can have on the victim’s life is profound. That is one reason why we have focused our practice on helping employees confront employers who engage in, tolerate or ignore illegal practices such as sexual discrimination.
Our skilled sexual discrimination attorneys can stand up for your rights, help you preserve a professional atmosphere at work and assure that your employer takes your complaint seriously. If your employer continues to fail in their duty to eliminate sexual discrimination, our experienced staff can help you decide which state or federal statute most closely addresses your situation and which agency you should contact to further pursue a remedy.
Damage Compensation and Obtaining Justice
If you have actually suffered damage from sexual discrimination, it may also be appropriate to file a lawsuit for damages in a state or federal court.
At Holman Schiavone, LLC, we have represented clients in sexual discrimination cases against both large and small employers in Missouri and Kansas. Our initial consultation is always free of charge, and we never charge legal fees until our client has won compensation.
