Were You Denied a Job or Promotion Because of Your Gender?
America has made a lot of progress since the days of “Help Wanted – Female” ads. Unfortunately, in many industries, the so-called “glass ceiling” still persists. Some employers still resist hiring or promoting female employees purely because of their gender. This prevents women from having an equal shot at success in the workplace. Clearly, it’s wrong. But it is also illegal.
If you have been denied a job or promotion simply because you are a woman, you may have been the victim of sexual discrimination. Sexual discrimination occurs when an employer, supervisor, or colleague, treats someone in an unfair way because of their sex. This includes being denied the job or promotion you deserve.
If you were the victim of sexual discrimination, you do not have to suffer in silence. An experienced attorney can help you fight for the job, promotion, and respect you deserve. Your employer or potential employer does not have the right to reject you based on your gender.
If your employer violated the law by discriminating against you due to your sex, you may be entitled to a financial settlement. This settlement may include the costs of missed wages and even compensation for emotional damages. In some cases, you may be able to get the job or promotion for which you were overlooked.
