San Francisco Gender Discrimination Attorney
The Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees the right to vote to women in the United States, was approved in 1920 – almost a century ago. Yet women – and sometimes men – still face gender discrimination in the workplace, even in a state as progressive as California. It is a violation of your civil rights for an employer to discriminate against you on the basis of your gender. If you are denied a job, a promotion, or benefits, or if you are wrongfully terminated or suffer harassment in the workplace because of your gender, speak at once to an experienced San Francisco gender discrimination attorney with the firm of Geonetta & Frucht. With more than fifty years of employment law experience, our San Francisco gender discrimination attorneys speak for the victims of gender discrimination in the workplace.
WE HOLD EMPLOYERS ACCOUNTABLE
Our discrimination lawyers work hard to hold accountable employers who are guilty of gender discrimination in:
– hiring or promoting
– wages and salaries
– assignments and duties
– discipline or termination
We also advocate for the victims of disability discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, age discrimination, racial discrimination, sexual harassment and other forms of employment discrimination including unwanted advances and a hostile work environment. Legal remedies in a gender discrimination case may include hiring or reinstatement, back pay, promotion, compensation for emotional distress, attorney’s fees, and fines or punitive damages. A gender discrimination claim is much more likely to prevail if an employee has first reported discrimination to a manager or a human resources department and exhausted the company’s internal administrative procedures before filing a lawsuit.
THE SPECIFIC LEGAL ADVICE YOU NEED
Our San Francisco gender discrimination attorneys can assess your particular circumstances and give you the specific legal advice you need. If you are a victim of gender discrimination or harassment at your job now or in the future, contact Geonetta & Frucht at once to learn about your legal rights and options. Remember, retaliation against an individual who has reported discrimination is illegal, so you should never fear taking action against your employer. In fact, if you were fired as a result of your involvement in reporting discrimination, this would be considered a wrongful termination.
