How Do I Know If I Have Been Sexually Discriminated Against?
Sexual discrimination is not always easy to determine and even more challenging 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 variety 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 type of unwanted sexual contact, verbal harassment, or requests for sex-related favors. Unfortunately, a lot of people do not report sex-related discrimination when it takes place. Nevertheless, those that commit this type of discrimination or harassment need to be held accountable for their actions.

Sexual harassment can consist of any unwanted physical or verbal action towards a coworker or employee. It includes asking for 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 demonstrate that you can perform a job, you might be overlooked since you’re not the ‘ideal’ sex. If so, you can evaluate your case to identify 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, credentials, and experience as another individual. Yet, they receive higher pay or better benefits because they are of a different sex. We might be able to establish that your pay is reduced because of your sex.
Discrimination can lead to long-lasting damage and can even prevent you from progressing in your profession. You may 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– who suffers the consequences. Nevertheless, due to 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 comments? Those that verbally attack you cause awkwardness in the workplace and create a hostile work environment. You do not need to put up with harassment if it impacts your job performance or personal wellbeing.
