Gender Discrimination

Society continues to make strides in gender equality, but discrimination based on sex or gender is still common in many workplaces and industries. Differences in treatment toward male and female employees may seem minor, but they can quickly add up and create a pervasive pattern of discrimination.

At Lavi & Ebrahimian, LLP, in Los Angeles, California, we are proud to fight on behalf of employees affected by discrimination. Our attorneys have represented men, women and transgender individuals throughout California, helping them assert their employee rights and pursue compensation for their damages.

What Is Gender Discrimination?

Gender discrimination may take the form of wrongful termination based on a person's gender, but termination is certainly not a requirement to prove discrimination. The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits and any other term or condition of employment.

Sex discrimination also can involve treating someone less favorably because of his or her connection with an organization or group that is generally associated with people of a certain sex. Sex discrimination may also involve unfavorable treatment of an employee or applicant because she is pregnant.

We frequently assist the victims of sexual harassment in pursuing action against employers. If workplace harassment has prevented you from performing your job safely and to the best of your ability, let our lawyers fight for you.
