Even in this day and age, people are often treated differently at work, or not hired at all, simply because of their gender. At Rager Law Firm, we strongly believe that this practice should be eradicated, and consigned to the history books where it belongs. Employers hiring a man with a child, only to overlook a woman because she has children or is of child-bearing age, is unacceptable and enforces the archaic opinion that men have careers while women raise children. It is the 21st century and there is absolutely no reason to allow this to continue.
While you may believe or want to believe, that gender bias is not as prevalent now as it once was, the sad truth is that things have not significantly improved over the last few decades. Whether you are employed by a multinational corporation or a small local business, you are entitled to be treated according to your abilities, not your gender. A passionate, dedicated Torrance gender discrimination attorney could protect your rights when you are affected by this behavior in the workplace, recovering damages in respect of lost wages, denied opportunities, and more, on your behalf.
How a Torrance Gender Discrimination Attorney Can Successfully Handle Your Case
Despite numerous legal changes designed to put an end to gender discrimination, unscrupulous employers manage to continue disadvantaging female workers. Whatever the reasons behind acting in this manner, it breaches the Equal Pay Act and, as such, is not acceptable. Should gender discrimination occur alongside other discrimination, perhaps on the grounds of race or disability, your employer could face violations of both state and federal legislation.
At Rager Law Firm, we understand that your gender discrimination case is more than just a breach of the Equal Pay Act – it is your life. To this end, we will consider every aspect of your circumstances, dissecting all of the facts and building an indisputable case on your behalf. For example, we will ensure that any legally required complaint is filed with the EEOC, as failing to do so could result in even the strongest suit being dismissed.
Your Torrance gender discrimination attorney firmly believes that there is no such thing as “a woman’s place”, and will pursue compensation for:
An employer’s negligent treatment of women’s rates of pay and wages, whatever the reason
Pay increases being denied based on the employee’s gender
