We will pursue your rights relentlessly to ensure that your employer, former employer, or any other person responsible for unlawful discrimination against you will be held accountable. Sex discrimination claims may include:

  • Wrongful termination on the basis of gender or sexual orientation
  • Discrimination in workplace terms and conditions including pay, benefits, hours, vacation policy etc

If you have made a complaint of sexual discrimination to your employer or supervisor and found that your working conditions have become worse as a result, there are protections afforded to you by the law. Sometimes a company investigation of your pending sex discrimination complaint may result in a worsening of your work environment. You should consult the Law Office of Pelayo Duran as early as possible in the complaint process. If your employer allows your work environment to become intolerable with the intention of forcing you to quit your job, you may also have a claim for constructive discharge.

Although career options and working conditions have generally improved for women over the past few decades, there is still a gender gap in pay levels between men and women across the country. Other types of gender discrimination also persist across a range of industries, despite the progress.
