Federal law prohibits employers from discriminating against workers on the basis of gender. This means that an employer may not harass a person because of their sex, treat an employee differently due to gender, or purposefully exclude one gender from employment opportunities. Gender discrimination in the workplace can be difficult to prove even though it exists. Our federal employment lawyers dedicate their practice to helping U.S. Government employees who have been the victim of gender discrimination. We assist clients throughout the EEO complaint process and will take the complaint as far as necessary. This includes filing a federal lawsuit. Our Atlanta based attorneys are available to help federal employees throughout the United States. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
Atlanta attorneys protecting federal employees, throughout the United States, from sexual harassment in the workplace and other gender related complaints
The most common example of gender discrimination in the workplace is sexual harassment. Sexual harassment occurs when a supervisor or co-worker makes disparaging remarks about another co-worker’s based on that co-worker’s gender. It may also include a co-worker or supervisor making unwelcome gestures or touching an employee in a way that makes them uncomfortable. In extreme cases, it may even include a supervisor refusing to promote or hire those who are not receptive to sexual advances. Sexual harassment creates a hostile work environment and federal law protects both men and women from having to endure such treatment. If you have been the victim of sexual harassment, the first step is to contact your agency’s EEO counselor immediately. A mediation will follow and, depending on the outcome of mediation, you may have to file a lawsuit in Federal Court. Having an attorney to help you with this complicated process is crucial.
There are other forms of workplace gender discrimination besides sexual harassment. These other forms of discrimination are more subtle and difficult to prove. Gender discrimination is not always blatant. These may include policies which impact one sex more than another as well as other actions. Such matters often require extensive investigation and discovery (the legal process by which information is gained from the other side). Having an attorney to help with this process is crucial.
