Fight for Your Rights for Workplace Equality with FairLaw Firm
Stereotypical views of men and women have no place in a professional job setting. Both sexes should be treated equally when applying for jobs or being considered for promotions. Men and women should also be paid comparable wages for the same types of positions with similar levels of education or experience. However, gender discrimination affecting fair work compensation still affects many in the modern era. If you believe you have been discriminated against in the workplace due to your gender, you could be eligible to file an employment discrimination claim. If you could benefit from the advice of a seasoned gender discrimination attorney in the Miami, FL area, FairLaw Firm would be happy to provide a free initial evaluation to determine the specifics of your case. Our staff is fluent in both English and Spanish to offer one-on-one, personalized consultations and invaluable expertise in and out of the courtroom.
You Are Protected Under the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964
Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Florida Civil Rights Act (FCRA) prohibit employers from discriminating against employees because of their sex or gender (the two terms are often used interchangeably within the legislation). Gender discrimination laws seek to displace negative societal stereotypes regarding a man’s or woman’s ability to perform specific types of work. The Equal Pay Act of 1963 amended the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 and was established to abolish wage disparity among the sexes. State and federal laws against gender discrimination are essential to ensure equal treatment between the sexes in relation to hiring, firing, compensation, promotions, work assignments or transfers, and even disciplinary actions. Employers may not treat workers of one gender differently from others, nor may they ignore recurring issues with sexual harassment in their workplace. Examples of gender employment discrimination include:
- Refusing to hire someone based on their gender
- Limiting raises, promotions, or benefits based on gender
- Firing someone because of their gender
- Posting job requirements containing gender stereotypes
- Creating a hostile work environment with sexual harassment
- Retaliating against an employee for filing a sexual discrimination claim
How to File an Employment Discrimination Claim in Florida
If you have encountered gender discrimination in the workplace, claims may be filed locally with the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR) or federally with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Many cases crisscross the jurisdiction of both agencies. Working with a workplace discrimination lawyer is usually in your best interest to ensure everything is covered accordingly. These types of cases are often sensitive to time constraints. Missing the deadline to file can hurt the eligibility of your claim. Don’t jeopardize your right to compensation for the harm done by gender discrimination. Consult FairLaw Firm immediately to see that your legal rights to workplace equality are protected.
