Sex & Gender Discrimination
Perona, Langer, Beck, Serbin and Harrison provides top-quality legal assistance to individuals unfairly terminated due to sex & gender discrimination.
Any time an employer treats an individual differently based solely on their sex or gender, this qualifies as discrimination. If you believe you have been fired or laid off just because you are a man or a woman, you should definitely contact PLBSH right away. Our experienced sex & gender discrimination attorneys will listen carefully to your description of events and help you understand your rights and options under the law.
How to Tell If Your Case Justifies a Wrongful Termination Claim
If your employer specifically told you that you were being let go because of your sex or gender, obviously this qualifies as wrongful termination. However, most cases are more subtle, involving a pattern of discrimination that informs hiring and firing decisions but is never directly stated. So ask yourself:
- Were derogatory remarks about men or women routinely made and tolerated?
- Were specific remarks made about your sex or gender and your job responsibilities?
- Was there evidence of gender stereotyping (such as only hiring or promoting men or women for certain positions)?
- Was your sex or gender disproportionately represented in recent layoffs?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may very well be able to establish a link between your sex or gender and your termination.
What Can Be Accomplished with a Wrongful Termination Claim?
Sometimes, the goal of a wrongful termination claim is to get the victim reinstated in their prior job position at their prior salary and benefit level. However, if you have been illegally fired just because of your sex or gender, you may not find the idea of returning to a discriminatory workplace very appealing. Fortunately, you can also seek monetary damages in your wrongful termination claim. This includes compensatory damages for lost income, missed benefits, emotional distress, and legal fees, as well as punitive damages designed to punish your former employer for their discriminatory actions.
At Perona, Langer, Beck, Serbin and Harrison, we work closely with each client to make sure we understand your specific concerns and goals for your case, and then we use all the resources at our disposal to fight passionately for the best possible resolution to your case.
Many wrongful termination cases can be resolved quickly in arbitration or mediation with the employer. However, if we need to take your case to court to secure the compensation and justice you deserve, we are not afraid to do so. Our law firm has an excellent track record in litigation and we will do everything in our power to present a compelling argument on your behalf.
