This type of discrimination is a violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. At Kennard Law, P.C., our Houston gender discrimination attorneys use this act to fight back against employers and stand up for the rights of workers like you.
Gender Discrimination Encompasses More Than Sexual Harassment
When people think of gender discrimination, they often think of sexual harassment, which is a common form of gender discrimination. However, harassment is not the only form of discrimination based on gender, and the victims can be women or men.
Gender discrimination is often tied closely to pay. For example, when women in a workplace are paid less than their male counterparts who perform the same duties, it is a clear example of discrimination. Similarly, women may be passed up for raises and promotions, while men who do the exact same work obtain these pay increases.
Pregnancy discrimination is often considered a kind of gender discrimination as well.
Gender And Sexual Orientation
In addition to standing up for women and men who have been mistreated in the workplace because of their gender, our lawyers also represent people who have been discriminated against because of their sexual orientation. Gay men and women and all members of the LGBT community can turn to us when their workplace rights have been violated.
