Types of Sex/Gender Discrimination Cases
Sex/gender discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of that person’s sex/gender. In addition, employer discrimination against an individual because of his or her gender identity, including transgender status, or because of sexual orientation is discrimination in violation of Title VII. Therefore, a company may not discriminate in any aspect of employment including hiring, firing, pay, assignments, promotions, layoffs, training, conditions or terms of employment based on sex/gender.
In addition, it is illegal to harass someone because of that person’s sex. “Harassment” includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sex or sexual favors, or other physical or verbal behavior. Harassment may also include offensive remarks made in generality about someone’s sex/gender. It does not matter that the harasser or the victim are of a particular sex/gender. They may both belong to the same sex/gender. Further, harassment becomes illegal once simple offhand, isolated comments become frequent or severe enough to create a hostile or offensive work environment. The harasser may be the victim’s supervisor, other management in the company, another worker or even a client or a customer. Moreover, a company policy or practice that applies to everyone can be unlawful if it has a negative impact on the employment of individuals belonging to a certain sex/gender and the policy or practice is not work-related or required for the operation of the business.

Success is almost entirely contingent on the attorney representation. Proper representation achieves maximum outcomes based on the remedies offered under FEHA and Title VII. Some of these remedies include lost wages, back pay which is pay that will compensate the employee for what he or she would have made had the discrimination or harassment had not occurred, front pay which is pay that will compensate the employee for lost future earnings that would have been earned if he or she was not discriminated against, reinstatement to the position, attorney’s fees and court costs. In addition, if we can show that the sex/gender discrimination was willful, then your award may include double wage damages and benefit damages.
