Stewart & Musell made all the difference in my wrongful termination case. From the very start they were respectful and compassionate where other prospective firms, to say the least, were not.

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.

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.
