Being unfairly treated in the workplace due to your gender is not only unfair, it is unlawful under state and federal laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act. Examples of gender discrimination include employers providing fewer opportunities to women because they believe men are better equipped to do the work, or preventing a man from taking leave to care for an ill child because the employer believes that is a woman’s job.

Gender Discrimination Law Firm
Although gender discrimination can involve any type of workplace conduct, it frequently involves unequal treatment between women and men with regard to:
- Benefits packages
- Firing and lay offs
For matters involving these or other issues, such as sexual harassment, we ensure that your rights are vindicated and that employers know that illegal gender-based actions will never be tolerated.
Gender discrimination is especially relevant in situations involving pregnancy. We have successfully represented many clients who were improperly demoted or fired following pregnancy leave, maternity leave, or other permitted time off under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or Pregnancy Discrimination Act.
