How Do I Know If I Have Been Sexually Discriminated Against?
Sexual discrimination is not always easy to identify and even more challenging 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 variety of methods by which a person can be discriminated against:
- Terms of work
- Work 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. Sadly, a lot of people do not report sex-related discrimination when it happens. Regardless, 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 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 demonstrate that you can do 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 might have the same job summary, credentials, and experience as another individual. Yet, they earn higher pay or better benefits since they are of different sex. We might be able to establish that your pay is reduced because of your sex.
Discrimination can cause long-lasting damage and can also prevent you from progressing in your occupation. 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– who suffers the consequences. Regardless, because of your sex, your credibility is sullied, making it hard to move forward in your career.
Hostile Work Environment
Are you being bothered at the office? Are you the target of consistent harmful jokes, slurs, or comments?
