Gender Discrimination

Southern California Sexual Harassment Attorneys

Gender or sex discrimination usually has more to do with power than with sex. Harassing or bullying behavior is a way to establish power over another person. In California, this kind of behavior is illegal in the workplace.

If you have been a victim of employment gender discrimination in the areas of San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Riverside and the surrounding communities, we advise you to contact Spray, Gould & Bowers LLP to arrange a free and confidential case evaluation with a Southern California sexual harassment attorney. You may be entitled to compensation, policy changes, and other remedies under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act.

Employment gender discrimination can take many forms:

  • Having a "glass ceiling", or limiting opportunities for female workers to advance
  • Having different expectations for male workers and female workers
  • Stereotyping based on gender
  • Restricting your job activities or opportunities because you are pregnant, even though there is no medical reason to do so
  • Discriminating against you because you are the primary care giver for a child or a family member
  • Making unwanted sexual advances or creating a hostile work environment for women (known as sexual harassment).

Compensation for Victims of Employment Gender Discrimination

Compensation in employment gender discrimination cases may include back pay, front pay, policy changes, reasonable accommodation, actual damages, damages for emotional distress, and punitive damages. There is no limit on the amount of emotional distress damages or punitive damages in gender discrimination cases. In order to find out what type of compensation you may be able to recover in this type of case, you should consult with a Southern California sexual harassment lawyer at our firm about the specific facts of your situation.
