Women’s Rights in the Workplace
November 6, 2018
Though significant strides have been made toward securing equal rights for women in the workplace, the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements show that women disproportionately continue to face discrimination and gender stereotyping on the job. Additionally, women are paid less than men for the same or comparable work.
At Rothman Gordon, we are strong advocates for women who have been discriminated against or shut out of higher-paying jobs because of their gender. With more than a quarter-century of experience in employment law, we will help you pursue justice. Call (412) 338-1195 or email us to schedule a consultation with one of our lawyers.
Strong Advocates for Women
It is against the law for an employer to discriminate against a woman based on her gender. If you believe that your employer is treating you differently or compensating you differently because of your sex, you may have a claim against your employer for discrimination.
A woman is denied equal rights in the workplace when she is:
- Sexually harassed
- Denied opportunities for advancement
- Penalized for taking advantage of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Discriminated against for pregnancy
- Denied equal pay for equal work
- Terminated for taking time off to care for her child with special needs
Our attorneys have a strong track record of success upholding women’s rights in the workplace. We are well-known throughout Pennsylvania for being tenacious for our clients. This reputation allows us to obtain the best possible results for our clients.
