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
- 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 occurs. Nevertheless, those that commit this kind of discrimination or harassment should be held accountable for their actions.
Sexual Discrimination Claims We Take On
Sex-related discrimination claims are both complicated and delicate. Although you want justice served, you might be worried about your case going public. At Marko Law, we handle these kinds of claims with sensitivity and discretion. We have a highly skilled legal team that understands how to handle and win your claim. We take on a variety of sexual discrimination claims such as:
Sexual harassment can involve any unwanted physical or verbal action toward a colleague 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 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 do a job, you may be overlooked since you’re not the ‘ideal’ sex. If so, you can assess 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 may have the same job summary, qualifications, and experience as another person. However, they earn higher pay or better benefits because they are of different sex. We might be able to establish that your pay is reduced due to your sex.
Discrimination can cause long-lasting damage and can even 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 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 remarks? Those that verbally attack you cause awkwardness in the workplace and create a hostile work environment. You do not need to tolerate harassment if it impacts your job performance or personal wellbeing.
Damages in a Sexual Discrimination Case
Sex-related discrimination can have significant financial, 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 may be entitled to recoup losses such as:
- Lost pay, benefits, or other payment
- The cost of finding a new job
- Damages associated with the breach of work
- Counseling or therapy for emotional distress
- Damage to your reputation
If the offender’s actions were intentional or malicious, you may also be able to seek punitive damages. Our goal is to get you the maximum payment possible based on your economic and non-economic losses.
