Gender Discrimination

Gender Discrimination Lawyer in Austin

Do you believe your sex was taken into account in the decision to terminate your employment? If you so, there are laws that can protect your rights as an employee and provide monetary benefits if your employer is engaging in unlawful employment practices.

In an employment setting, gender discrimination occurs when one employee is treated unfavorably and differently than a similarly situated employee.  The different treatment could occur in any aspect of your employment, including but not limited to, hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoffs, training, or benefits.

In most instances these types of cases will involve female workers being treated in an unfair manner but both men and women can be victims of gender-based discrimination.

Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee on the basis of sex in connection with hiring, firing, promotions, demotions, compensation, and other terms and conditions of employment.

It is important to know and understand your rights in the workplace, as well as your options with respect to gender discrimination so that you can make an informed decision about how to proceed.
