Understanding The Law Concerning Gender Discrimination
When an employer fails to hire you, fails to promote you, pays you less than someone of the opposite gender in the same role, terminates or otherwise discriminates against you based on your gender, do not be afraid to stand up and assert your rights. This is especially applicable in situations involving:
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Equal pay issues
- Sexual harassment
- Disparate treatment
- Retaliation for reporting discrimination
You can hold your employer (or a prospective employer) accountable for this discriminatory conduct with the help of the employment law team at John A. Klassen, PA.
