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 somebody unfairly as a result of their sex identification or sexual orientation. There are a number of methods which an individual can be discriminated against:
- Terms of work
- Work 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. Sadly, 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 Discrimination Claims We Handle

At Marko Law, we deal with these types of claims with sensitivity and discretion. We have a very proficient legal team that knows how to handle and win your claim. We handle a variety of sexual discrimination cases such as:
Sexual harassment can include any unwanted physical or verbal action towards 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 no matter 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 may be overlooked since you’re not the ‘ideal’ sex. If so, you can evaluate your claim to identify how you were discriminated against. You can not be denied employment opportunities on the basis of sex.
Compensation and Benefits
You might have the same job summary, credentials, and experience as another person. Yet, they receive higher pay or better benefits because they are of a different sex. We may be able to establish that your pay is decreased because of your sex.
Discrimination can cause long-lasting damage and can also prevent you from progressing in your profession. You might get 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. Nevertheless, due to your sex, your credibility is tainted, making it difficult to move forward in your career.
Aggressive Work Environment
Are you being bothered at the workplace? Are you the target of constant 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.
Damages in a Sexual Discrimination Case
Sex-related discrimination can have serious economic, professional, and psychological effects that impact practically every part of your life. Our legal team considers how you were affected by discrimination when analyzing your claim. You could be qualified to recover losses such as:
- Lost pay, benefits, or other payment
- The cost of finding a new job
- Damages related to breach of work
- Counseling or therapy for emotional distress
- Damage to your credibility
If the offender’s actions were deliberate or malicious, you could even be able to pursue punitive damages. Our objective is to get you the maximum payment possible based on your economic and non-economic losses.
