San Francisco Gender Discrimination Lawyer
Retain a Skilled Employment Law Attorney
Even after decades of progress and encouraging legislature, gender discrimination
still remains a rampant problem in workplaces all around the country.
The national debate still rages over equal pay, pregnancy leaves, and
the prevalence (or the lack thereof) of women employees in numerous industries.
Even worse, sometimes gender discrimination can be hard to identify. Not
every employee is privy to management preferences and their colleague's
paychecks. However, when it is exposed, it's painful, angering, and
confusing. At Stewart & Musell, LLP, our
San Francisco employment law attorneys know how frustrating and harrowing this discrimination can be. We bring

What is considered gender discrimination?
Gender discrimination encompasses any instance in which an employee loses
favor or station in the workplace solely based on their gender and can
commonly happen to both men and women workers. In California, this discrimination
is illegal under both state and federal statutes.
Gender discrimination occurs any time:
- An employee loses favor, station, or undue wages due to a pregnancy.
- An employee isn't paid as much as an employee of the opposite gender
for doing identical work.
- An employee is passed over for promotions or bonuses due to their gender.
- Any other policies or treatment that singles out employees based on gender.
These are all circumstances protected under Title VII of the Civil Rights
Act and California's Fair Employment and Housing Act. Many employees
believe these kinds of actions are strictly a civil matter, but they are
not. They are illegal actions and those guilty can be held accountable.
