Austin Gender Discrimination Attorneys
Despite an increasing improvement in workplace gender equality, discrimination on the basis of gender continues to be an issue in some professional settings. When an employer bases hiring, advancement, and firing decisions on the gender of any given employee, they can be held legally accountable.
The gender discrimination attorneys at The Melton Law Firm understand how frustrating it is when wrongful treatment in the workplace prevents you from performing your professional duties. Our attorneys dedicate themselves to defending workers that have been unfairly treated on the basis of their gender.
Forms of Gender Discrimination in the Workplace
Though a person’s gender should not affect the way they are treated by their employers or coworkers, the following forms of gender discrimination unfortunately occur in some professional settings:
- Derogatory remarks based on an individual’s gender
- Persistent, patterned preference of one gender over another
- Offensive, or otherwise inappropriate, gestures or behavior target to a particular gender group
Gender discrimination is altogether unacceptable and should never be tolerated in the workplace. When an employer instigates discrimination, or fails to protect employees from such abuse, the responsible party may be held legally accountable for their actions.
