Gender Discrimination

California Gender Discrimination Lawyer

Gender discrimination can take many forms. A woman can hit the proverbial "glass ceiling," which prevents her from assuming a position of greater managerial responsibility within an organization. Women can also hit "glass walls" when they seek to make horizontal career transitions into occupations traditionally filled by men. Gender discrimination can manifest itself in more insidious ways, such as sexual harassment or workplace retaliation. Men, as well as women, can suffer the effects of gender discrimination.

All of the behaviors described above are violations of California and federal law. Obtaining justice in such cases is not always easy, however, because the laws are complex and set high standards of proof. As experienced employment law attorneys, Schonbrun Seplow Harris & Hoffman, LLP has succeeded on behalf of employees in numerous cases involving discrimination, wage-and-hour claims, sexual harassment and other violations of employment law.

Pregnancy Discrimination

The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the California Family Rights Act mandate 12 weeks of unpaid medical leave for employees of many companies following the births of children. Some companies either fail to provide this time off or they find ways to discriminate against new mothers upon their return to work.

If you have suffered this type of discrimination, Schonbrun Seplow Harris & Hoffman, LLP will provide vigorous advocacy on your behalf.
