Gender roles are often skewed before women or men are hired. Whereas an employer may hire middle-aged men with young children, they may pass over an equally qualified woman with kids. Employers have a misplaced, preconceived notion that women rear children, and men work, even in the 21st century.
The Rager Law Firm understands gender disparity runs amok in today’s technologically driven world of commerce. From Kaiser Permanente to your local grocery store, gender bias is as common now as fifty years ago. With our empathetic Riverside gender discrimination attorney working diligently by your side, many wrongs can be righted while compensating you for wages lost, opportunities blocked, and other monies deemed just and proper.
How We Handle Gender Discrimination Cases
Even with significant workplace reform, employers still find ways to unequally pay female workers. The reasons aren’t quite known, but nonetheless, doing so breaks EPA (Equal Pay Act) mandates. California and federal laws can work collectively in situations where gender disparity is happening alongside racial bias and disability discrimination, for example.
As we view each case individually, even taking class action suits, all facts are dissected and cross-referenced to build an ironclad case. Any legally required complaints must be filed with EEOC, however, because this important step could get cases thrown out for procedural violations and a defendant’s claim of unfairness.
Women no longer ‘have a place’ in society and home; they deserve equal rights to earn fair wages based off equal work performed and commensurate experience.
An employer’s negligent treatment of women’s wages for whatever reason.
An employee who has repeatedly asked for raises but is denied based solely on their gender
Employees who’ve changed genders being disallowed similar pay and benefits as those who don’t undergo sex-change operations.
A woman being passed over for a promotion given to a lesser qualified man, or fired in lieu of a male being hired in her spot.
Interviewer asking women her timeline for bearing children.
Manager telling woman to either wear more provocative clothing or get demoted.
These are some basic mitigating factors we use when evaluating cases to determine steps necessary, whether we’ll send a pre-trial settlement demand or simply file our case, and so forth.
Equality Is Important at The Rager Law Firm
Employers, in addition to being prohibited from gender separation, cannot justify paying males more than females simply because ‘this position is made for a male’ or similar nonsense. When jobs are created, they’re to be equally available to able bodied women and men with proper training and experience.
If you find yourself doubting your work is being appreciated, but a male coworker doing similar work is constantly lauded and given more money, perhaps you have a claim which our Riverside gender discrimination attorney can look over.
