Sex & Gender Discrimination Attorney

Explaining Your Rights As an Employee in Connecticut

Sex and gender discrimination continues to have a substantial presence in many workplace environments in the U.S. despite the progress made since the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. From offices to shipyards to assembly lines to the hospitality industry, and in virtually every area of business, sex and gender discrimination prevents employees from receiving equal treatment. Employees, including executives and partners, who are treated differently in the workplace because of their gender should seek the services of a skilled New Haven employment discrimination attorney as soon as possible to begin building a strong case. Call our Connecticut employment discrimination attorneys at (203) 285-8294!

Documentation is important and can help substantiate a claim against an employer. Be sure to keep a record of discriminatory occurrences. A journal is a practical way to track the incidents and can establish a timeline. If there are any emails, texts, phone messages or other types of supporting evidence, be sure to keep those for documenting your case. We urge you to contact our firm to discuss your case, and our concerned legal team can advise you how we can address the issue most effectively and with the least stress for you.

Forms of Sex & Gender Discrimination in Connecticut

While the majority of sex and gender discrimination cases involve women, men are equally susceptible to this type of employment discrimination in any given industry. Victims of sex and gender discrimination typically receive lower wages and bonuses as well as fewer promotions. Some employers may choose not to hire an individual based on gender or may require members of a certain sex to work in a different work environment, one that is often insufficient. These are all common ways in which sex and gender discrimination in the workplace occurs, and every effort to identify, expose and eradicate this practice can help fellow employees.

Sexual Orientation and Gender Discrimination

Discriminatory behavior targeting an employee’s sexual orientation also falls under sex and gender discrimination. As such, LGBT discrimination is also considered unlawful in the workplace. This has been established through legal precedent in cases throughout the nation and is upheld by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). If you believe your employer has treated you unfairly because of your sexual orientation, you have the right to take legal action—let our firm help you seek justice in your workplace.
