Taking adverse employment action against an individual because of his or her gender is unlawful behavior under both Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the California Fair Employment Act. No person should have to endure such treatment by their co-workers or their employer. At the Bononi Law Group, LLP in Los Angeles, California, we provide relentless advocacy on behalf of individuals who have suffered gender discrimination by an employer or potential employer.
If you believe your sex has played a factor in a decision not to hire or to terminate your employment, or if you have suffered employment retaliation based on gender, contact an experienced employment law attorney at the Bononi Law Group, LLP today. Our firm is recognized throughout Southern California for our leadership in even the most complex employment law disputes.
Gender discrimination can take many forms, including:
- Failure to hire based on sex
- Disparate treatment between men and women in the workplace regarding promotions, salary, and benefits
- Demotion or layoff following pregnancy leave or maternity leave under the California Family Rights Act (CFRA)
- Retaliation following a complaint of sex or gender discrimination
- Violation of Title VII or the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Wrongful termination
Even if gender discrimination is not intentional, if an employers policies and procedures have a disparate impact on men and women, this may also qualify as a gender discrimination claim.
Our firm has represented both employees and applicants who have been discriminated against in cases of hiring and firing or in cases when discrimination or retaliation was so unbearable the employee was forced to resign.
Our lawyers have extensive experience successfully mediating, arbitrating, and litigating gender discrimination disputes. Although we prepare for every case as if we will go to court, often our proactive, aggressive approach at the very beginning motivates our opponents to settle out of court, saving our clients the time and cost associated with litigation.
If you have suffered wrongful termination or constructive discharge due to gender discrimination in the workplace, you may be entitled to emotional, punitive, and other financial legal remedies.
