Los Angeles Gender Discrimination Lawyers
Working to Change the Balance of Power
Women have made great strides in eliminating gender bias and fighting for equal pay and rights in the workplace. However, women are still subject to gender discrimination at work. If you have been harmed by illegal discrimination based on gender, call Feldman Browne Olivares for skilled legal representation. Our gender discrimination attorneys in Los Angeles have represented numerous clients in cases involving sex and gender discrimination.
Legal Protections for Employees
Gender discrimination is prohibited by The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and Title VII. In addition, the federal Equal Pay Act and the California’s Fair Pay Act both prohibit paying employees of one sex less than employees of the opposite sex for performing substantially similar work. If an employer violates the law, the employee can seek compensation by filing a lawsuit.
Representation for All Types of Gender Discrimination
Equal pay has gotten a lot of attention in recent years, especially with federal and state laws being passed that require equal pay for women and men. While the persistent differences between the earnings of men and women remain an important issue, there are other forms of gender discrimination that women commonly face in the workplace.
We represent clients in many types of gender discrimination cases, including:
- Wage discrimination
- Failure to promote or firing based on gender
- Sexual harassment claims
- Hostile work environment claims
- Pregnancy discrimination
