What to Know About Federal and State Sex Discrimination Laws
An employee should be assessed based on their own individual merits, not on tired stereotypes about sex and gender. Both men and women are protected against sex-based discrimination in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 covers all companies and organizations with at least 15 full and part-time workers. The federal law bars sex-based discrimination. The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD) prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex and gender at all jobs, regardless of the size of the employer.
How to Identify Workplace Sex Discrimination or Gender Discrimination
Sex-based discrimination comes in many different forms. It happens when an employee is subject to less favorable treatment because of their sex or gender. In some cases, discrimination is subtle. Employers may also try to cover up discriminatory practices with pretextual (false) reasoning. You may be been the victim of sex-based discrimination if your sex/gender played a role in any of the following:
- Denial of a job opportunity;
- Dental of a promotion;
- Assignment to less desirable job duties;
- Lower pay or lower benefits;
- Disproportionate punishment, potentially including termination; and
- Sexual harassment and/or a hostile work environment.
If you suspect that you were the victim of sex discrimination and/or sexual harassment, you should consult with an experienced Lambertville employment law attorney. A lawyer will be able to review your case, answer your questions, initiate an investigation, and take action to get you justice and financial compensation.
You Have the Right to File a Formal or Informal Sex Discrimination Complaint
Title VII and the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination give workers the right to raise formal and informal complaints about discriminatory workplace practices. Your employer cannot punish you because you reported sex discrimination or filed a sex discrimination claim. If an employer does take adverse action against you on these grounds, they are violating the law. Contact an experienced Lambertville employment attorney for immediate help with your case.
