Workplace Discrimination Based on Gender

Gender discrimination, also referred to as sex discrimination, is a violation of state and federal laws. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Louisiana statutes forbid employers from discriminating against workers based on gender. Common claims involve:

  • Failure to recruit, hire or promote
  • Unequal pay for work
  • Retaliation for taking maternity leave
  • Problems arising from the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Glass ceiling limitations for women in management and other positions
  • Employer retaliation for making a gender discrimination complaint

New Orleans gender discrimination attorney Victor Farrugia will thoroughly investigate your situation and build a strong case based on the evidence.

Louisiana Pregnancy Discrimination

Women should never have to choose between having a family and keeping a job. Unfortunately, some employers unlawfully retaliate against expectant or new mothers by wrongfully terminating them or making the working conditions so intolerable that the employees feel they have no choice but to quit. Sometimes, employers assume that a pregnant employee will not come back to work after maternity leave and simply stop including that person in important meetings and activities.

An experienced lawyer can explain your rights and protect you from unlawful actions.
