Taking On Employers In Gender Discrimination Cases

Any employee has the right to do their job free of discrimination, harassment and retaliation. Yet though laws prohibit such practices from occurring, discrimination based upon gender is common.

The attorneys at Brenes Law Group, P.C., take immediate action when allegations of gender discrimination arise. We aggressively pursue claims and work toward finding the sort of compensation that makes victims of such discrimination whole.

What Is Workplace Gender Discrimination?

Discrimination based on gender at the workplace takes many forms. It can include sexual harassment, pregnancy discrimination, unequal pay and working conditions for women, and retaliation for reporting that gender discrimination exists. And while there are many federal and state laws forbidding gender discrimination from taking place, it continues to occur.

The employment discrimination lawyers at our firm focus on protecting the rights of those we represent. We will provide personalized representation for your claim and will pay particular attention to the facts of your case. We will ensure that we will always be available to answer your questions and guide you through the legal process.

Knowledgeable Handling Of Sexual Harassment Cases

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 defines sexual harassment as unwelcome sexual advances and a wide variety of other actions that impact a worker's morale and ability to perform their job. Sometimes, such harassment involves a supervisor demanding sexual favors of employees. It can also concern a hostile work environment where management tolerates inappropriate behavior by staff towards other employees. In either instance, employers are liable.

Proving sexual harassment can be challenging, however. While employers sometimes defend themselves by saying an employee consented to the harassing behavior, this is often a bogus claim. An employee cannot freely consent to such behavior when failing to cooperate could put their job in jeopardy.

It is important to have on your side an attorney who will pursue your claim and give it the attention it deserves. The staff at Brenes Law Group, P.C., will be there for you from the beginning until final resolution of your claim. We understand employment law and know what actions to take put a stop to harassing behavior.
