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 somebody unfairly as a result of their sex identification or sexual orientation. There are a number of methods by which a person can be discriminated against:

  • Terms of employment
  • Benefits
  • Training
  • Discharges
  • Promotions
  • Job assignment
  • Settlement
  • Hiring and firing

Sexual discrimination also includes harassment, which includes any type 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 kind of discrimination or harassment need to be held accountable for their actions.

Sexual Discrimination Claims We Take On

Sex-related discrimination cases are both complicated and delicate. Although you want justice served, you may be worried about your case going public. At Marko Law, we deal with these types of cases with sensitivity and discretion. We have a highly experienced legal team that recognizes how to manage and win your case. We take on a variety of sexual discrimination claims such as:

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment can involve any unwanted physical or verbal action toward a colleague or employee. It includes requesting sex-related favors or similar conduct, whether the conduct is explicit or suggested. Our legal team works with victims that have experienced any type 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 may be ignored since you’re not the ‘ideal’ sex. If so, you can evaluate your case to determine how you were discriminated against. You can not be denied employment opportunities on the basis of sex.

Compensation and Benefits

You may have the same job summary, qualifications, and experience as another person. Yet, they receive higher pay or better benefits because they are of different sex. We may be able to establish that your pay is reduced because of your sex.

Professional Defamation

Discrimination can lead to long-lasting damage and can even prevent you from progressing in your profession. You could receive a negative recommendation or be the victim 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 credibility is sullied, making it hard to move forward in your career.

Aggressive Work Environment

Are you being bothered at the workplace? Are you the target of consistent harmful jokes, slurs, or remarks? Those that verbally attack you cause awkwardness in the workplace and create a hostile work environment. You do not have to put up with harassment if it affects your work performance or personal wellbeing.

Damages in a Sexual Discrimination Case

Sex-related discrimination can have significant economic, professional, and psychological effects that impact virtually every part of your life. Our legal team looks at how you were affected by discrimination when analyzing your claim. You could be entitled to recover losses such as:

  • Lost pay, benefits, or other payment
