How Do I Know If I Have Been Sexually Discriminated Against?
Sexual discrimination is not always easy to determine and even more difficult to prove. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines sex-based discrimination as treating someone unfairly as a result of their sex identification or sexual orientation. There are a number of methods by which an individual can be discriminated against:
- Terms of work
- Job assignment
- Hiring and firing
Sexual discrimination also includes harassment, which includes any kind of unwanted sexual contact, verbal harassment, or requests for sex-related favors. Unfortunately, a lot of men and women do not report sex-related discrimination when it occurs. Nevertheless, those that commit this type of discrimination or harassment need to be held accountable for their actions.

Sexual harassment can involve any unwanted physical or verbal action toward a coworker or employee. It involves requesting sex-related favors or similar conduct, whether the conduct is explicit or suggested. Our legal team works with victims that have experienced any kind of sexual harassment regardless of the circumstances.
Hiring and Firing
An employer might work with or fire you just because of your sex. Even if you show that you can perform a job, you might be ignored because you’re not the ‘ideal’ sex. If so, you can assess your claim to determine how you were discriminated against. You can not be refused employment opportunities on the basis of sex.
Compensation and Benefits
You may have the same job summary, qualifications, and experience as another person. However, they earn higher pay or better benefits since they are of different sex. We might be able to establish that your pay is reduced due to your sex.
Discrimination can result in long-lasting damage and can even prevent you from progressing in your occupation. You may receive a negative recommendation or be the target of a false rumor. When you are treated unfairly it could be you– not the at-fault party– that suffers the consequences. Regardless, because of your sex, your reputation is sullied, making it challenging to move forward in your career.
Hostile Work Environment
Are you being bothered at the office? Are you the target of constant harmful jokes, slurs, or remarks? Those that verbally attack you cause awkwardness in the workplace and create a hostile work environment.
