Gender Inequality at Your Workplace?

Gender discrimination in the workplace has the ability to affect many people, and gender inequality at work can be experienced in small companies as well as big ones. In September, Microsoft became the latest tech firm to be accused of gender discrimination. The class action lawsuit charged that the company unfairly discriminates against female employees by giving women lower scores in Microsoft’s numerical ranking, keeping women from being promoted to higher-level positions.

Microsoft is only one of many companies that have been accused of gender discrimination and if you or a loved one has been discriminated against due to gender, the gender discrimination lawyers at The Law Offices of Joseph & Norinsberg are dedicated to fighting for your rights.

What is Gender Discrimination?

Gender discrimination involves treating someone unfavorably because of that person’s sex and can happen at any part of the employment phase including hiring, compensation, and wrongful termination. Gender discrimination can come in a variety of forms such as taking women less seriously than men, preferring or promoting one applicant over another of equal or greater qualifications based on whether the person is a woman or man, or treating someone less favorably because of his or her connection with an organization that is generally associated with people of a certain sex. Though women are more likely to be discriminated against based on gender, depending on the occupation, men are discriminated against in the workplace, as well.

What Law Governs Gender Discrimination?

Gender discrimination in the workplace is considered a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and New York State and New York City Human Rights Laws. Gender discrimination against an individual because of gender identity, including transgender status, or because of sexual orientation is also a violation of these laws. New York City Human Rights Laws, particularly, prohibit discrimination in employment based on gender, including gender identity, and under this law it is an unlawful discriminatory practice for an employer to refuse to hire, terminate, or discriminate against an individual based on gender. In conjunction, New York City and State have retaliation laws in place if an employer retaliates against an employee for seeking justice.

I am very amazed and pleased for the wonderful work Diego Barros did for me and our co-workers, speechless to see how wonderful and constructive everything work. First time with Diego Barros and i am totally impressed to have seen how great you have worked for all of us, i will totally recommend you to anybody who is in need of help without at doubt at all in all senses.

Mr. Diego helped me WIN and reach a great settlement. Wages recovered from lack of pay and serious misconducts from employer. He was very informative and easy to talk to every step of the way. Very happy with the settlement I received. He will go for the win and get you what you deserve! If you having problems with employment I give Mr. Diego my full recommendation to get your issues resolved.

Jon and his team are amazing. They fought every step of the way for me and my family. My case was handled with such care and concern and Jon’s honesty gave me great confidence in his ability to win my case.

To have Bennitta Joseph who wins high profile cases against companies like Delta is a win for any company. The fact that they equip entrepreneurs like me with tools to compete with fortune 500 is a competitive advantage. If you are a company that deals with people and wants to succeed, hiring her is a must!

This was the first and hopefully my last lawsuit and the process wasn’t what I thought. The patience shown to me (even when I became frustrated) was great. Everyone showed respect, sensitivity, and I’d recommend the firm to everyone. Losing my job set me behind on several bills, but I can now pay them. The situation I went through will help me going forward.

Bennitta Joseph is committed to Justice. After be wronged at work in 2015, and discriminated against I felt very hopeless and wronged. I felt as though I had no hope standing up to a corporate giant, and no chance of winning. After explaining my case and sharing the facts Bennitta felt differently. She did warn me it would be a long and tough road and that I had to have thick skin. In my experience if you take Bennitta’s lead and trust her legal experience no case it too big, or too small for her…

Me trataron muy bien y estoy satisfecho con el servicio. Inicialmente llamé para unirme a un caso anterior, pero cuando ya era demasiado tarde para unirme a ese caso, estaban felices de luchar por un segundo caso. No pensé que podrían hacer que otro caso funcionara, pero lo hicieron. Aprendí cuáles son mis derechos en cuanto a salario mínimo y tiempo extra y puedo usar esta información en el futuro. Recomiendo mucho la oficina.
