Glen Rock, New Jersey

Glen Rock Gender Discrimination Law Firm

Unfortunately, in New York and New Jersey gender discrimination is far too common in today’s workforce. Gender discrimination (also known as sex discrimination) typically occurs when a company discriminates against women by favoring men when making decisions about who it should hire, promote demote, give a raise, layoff or fire.

Even though women more often experience sex discrimination in the workplace, both men and women can be the victims of sex discrimination. Either way, it is a violation of your employment law rights in both New Jersey and New York if your employer treats you worse based on your sex or a gender stereotype. As a result, it is a violation of your employment law rights if your gender is the reason you hit the corporate “glass ceiling,” are being underpaid compared to your peers or were wrongfully terminated.

Sexual Harassment is a Form of Gender Discrimination

Sexual harassment, which is harassment due to gender, is another form of legally prohibited gender discrimination. While it often is sexual in nature, any form of harassment based on your gender can be part of a sexual harassment case if it contributes to making your work environment hostile or abusive.
