Gender Discrimination Should Not Impede Your Career

Gender is personal – and almost never truly related to work. When your co-workers, customers or boss treats you differently solely because of your gender, the discrimination you face could have serious consequences for your life.

Our lawyers at Thorman Petrov Group know how to fight against gender discrimination. By building creative strategies, we have achieved numerous high-value successes in discrimination cases for Ohio employees. Reach out to our firm to get protection for your job and civil rights.

How Gender Discrimination Creates Obstacles

Sex-based discrimination frequently involves:

  • Wrongful termination
  • Lower pay for similar work
  • Harassment, including sexual harassment
  • Denial of benefits or FMLA leave
  • Inequitable job assignments
  • Denial of break time for nursing mothers
  • Refusal of employment or a promotion

While people of any gender may face discrimination, many cases affect women, pregnant workers and transgender employees. In addition to your gender, how you express it may be a target of discrimination. Feminine, masculine and nonbinary gender presentation may be perfectly appropriate for the workplace regardless of how your employer feels about your appearance.
