State and federal law prohibits most private business from discriminating against employees on the basis of gender. This means that an employee or applicant may not be refused a position, a promotion, or be terminated because of their sex. While gender discrimination can be difficult to prove, having an attorney advocating for one’s interests can greatly improve the chances of a resolution. Our Georgia employment attorneys dedicate their practice to standing up for the rights of workers. Contact us today for a case evaluation. We are located in Jonesboro and serve employees throughout the Atlanta Metro area.
Atlanta workers’ rights attorneys fighting against gender discrimination in the workplace
Georgia’s gender discrimination laws protect one working for, or applying with, a business which has ten or more employees. Discrimination complaints are filed through the Atlanta District Office of the EEOC. When a smaller company does not have a dedicated HR representative then many employees may feel lost as to what their rights are and if they are able to file a complaint. Our attorneys are often able to find resolutions for employees who experience discrimination in the private sector. Examples of common gender discrimination which our firm assists with includes:
- When members of the opposite sex are paid more for the same job or a job of equal duties and status
- When members of the opposite sex who are less qualified and are given lower performance review grades are promoted above an employee
- When a company policy excludes a member of the opposite sex
- When a company refuses to promote or hire you because of your gender or traits that are associated with your gender
- When an employee is not hired or promoted due to their marital status or status as a parent
