Gender Discrimination

Today, women continue to make less money than men, continue to take on the majority of household and family responsibilities. We face physical violence at a much greater rate than men do, let alone the constant microaggressions like cat-calling, mansplaining and “hepeating”. And we continue to suffer unfair expectations that we soothe and stroke men’s egos by acting deferential and making ourselves smaller and quieter. We are proud to fight sexual harassment, pay inequity, and all other forms of gender discrimination in the workplace.

FIRM SUCCESSES

Hostile Work Environment

We secured substantial monetary compensation for our client who had been subject to a hostile work environment, including gender-based slurs and lewd activity.

Medical Complications Threatened Job Security

Our client was told that, because she needed a few additional months to recover from post-childbirth medical complications, her job was no longer guaranteed for the following term.  We intervened and quickly secured the reassurance they should have given her from the beginning – that she would not be illegally penalized for the woeful task of propagating the human species.

Pattern of Workplace Sexual Harassment

Our client came to us after her boss sexually assaulted her.  Quietly and discretely, we were able to support our client in identifying other women who he had harassed, uncovering a serious pattern of abuse targeting a vulnerable population.  Through litigation, we secured a substantial six-figure recovery for our clients, one of whom said she could finally sleep soundly for the first time in years.  Even better, inside sources say that the behavior has stopped.

Fired While Pregnant

Our client was fired, for totally pretextual reasons and without warning, shortly after announcing her pregnancy.  First, we made sure she had the health insurance arrangements she needed to ensure a safe and healthy delivery.  Then we put the fear of god in her employer and negotiated a substantial settlement payment, enabling her to enjoy a safe and peaceful labor and delivery, and a peaceful bonding time with her (now healthy and happy!) baby.

Threatened in the Workplace

Our client had secured a new job after being forced out by homophobic threats and slurs.  However, the harassment continued when his employer tried to enforce a questionable “non-compete” clause, jeopardizing his new position.  We shut that baloney down swiftly and our client was able to move on in peace.
