Los Angeles Sex Discrimination Lawyers
An Orange County Employment Law Firm With More Than 30 of Experience
Sex and gender discrimination is an increasing area of legal concern as the number of women and openly gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals enter the workforce. State and federal laws mandate that these employees are given equal access and protections. Yet, too often they are discriminated against simply because of their sex or gender identification.
Allred, Maroko & Goldberg, in Los Angeles, was founded 38 years ago. Since then, the firm has built a national reputation for handling complex employment law cases where individuals were denied their basic rights and protections. If you believe you have been denied a job, fired, harassed or otherwise mistreated due to your sex or because you are a member of the GLBT community, please contact our Los Angeles sex discrimination attorneys for a case evaluation.
Sex vs. Gender Discrimination
Sex and gender discrimination are tied closely together, yet they have two distinct meanings. A person's sex refers to whether they are genetically male or female. Gender refers to which sex someone more closely identifies. An individual may be discriminated at work because of his or her sex, such as denying a job to someone because she is female. Or, someone may be discriminated against because he is genetically male, but identifies more as a female. Employment laws protect against these and other similar situations.
Our lawyers' ability to successfully interpret and apply California and federal employment laws have led to millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients. Some examples of successful sex discrimination cases follow:
- $1.68 million settlement for a group of female farm workers who were denied work because of their sex
- $440,000 settlement for a female bank executive who was denied decision making responsibilities and demoted to handling lesser tasks by her male colleagues
