Gender Discrimination & Sexual Harassment
Chicago Employment Lawyers Aggressively Protecting Employee's Rights
As an employee, you should be aware that your employer is not legally allowed
to treat you unfavorably on the basis of your gender. This includes any
form of discrimination or any type of sexual harassment, whether it be
physical, verbal, or otherwise.
A Chicago employment law attorney can help you address gender discrimination
and sexual harassment and inform you when you have a claim while assisting
you with all legal filings. Our lawyers at The Prinz Law Firm are highly
competent at working with employees like yourself to ensure that your
rights are not being violated.
Types of Gender Discrimination
If you think your employer may be singling you out based on your gender
and/or any connection you have with an organization or group that is typically
associated with people of a certain gender, it would be wise to hire an attorney.
In an employment setting, gender discrimination occurs when one employee
is treated unfavorably and differently than a similarly situated employee.
Additionally, a policy that applies to everyone may still be discriminatory
on the basis of gender if it has a negative effect on a specific gender
and is not related to the job at hand or essential to business operations.
Discriminatory treatment could occur in any aspect of your employment,
including but not limited to:
- Job assignments
Experiencing Sexual Harassment?
In addition to any form of intentional or unintentional discrimination,
it is absolutely illegal for your employer to sexually harass you based
on your gender. Verbal or physical harassment, questions or requests,
unwelcome advances, and offensive comments about gender in general should
not be tolerated. Such conduct may be considered sexual harassment and/or
may create a hostile work environment.
