All over the United States, workplaces are filled with different types of discrimination. Sadly, only a few people decide to do something about it. The remaining ones are left to cope with discrimination and tolerate the conditions they are forced to work in.
One type of discrimination that is always present, no matter where you work, is gender discrimination. Sadly, male workers are often better facilitated than female workers and have better wages and work conditions.
If your male colleagues have better working conditions than you do, there are a few things that you can. Start by consulting with an attorney.
You Have The Same Rights
Once you contact an attorney, you will quickly learn that you have the same rights as your male coworkers. The question is what do you want to do to try and change your working conditions? Are you willing to file a discrimination claim against your employer or the company you are working for, risking your job in the process?
This is the main reason why so many women remain quiet. They are afraid of losing their jobs and choose to remain quiet in order to keep those jobs, even if they are forced to work in different conditions and terms than their male coworkers.
Los Angeles Discrimination Attorneys advise you to be a role model. If you stand up and fight for your rights, you may encourage others to do so as well. If you give us a call today, we will evaluate your case for free and provide you with legal guidance and counseling. If there is enough evidence to prove that you are indeed working in different conditions and are not facilitated in the same way as your male coworkers, you will be able to file a discrimination claim against your employer or the company you are working for, without the fear of losing your job.
If your employer retaliates against you, worry not, as you will be able to file another claim against your employer, this time for retaliation. Either way, you will have two successful claims and still get to keep your job.
You are Protected!
Both the Equality Act and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission are on your side. The act states that there should be no gender discrimination at the workplace, and the Commission protects you from any such discrimination. Filling a claim with them will definitely protect you and your rights as an employee in California. In addition, the employer may face serious penalties and charges and will have to facilitate female employees in the same way male employees are facilitated. The change may require some time, but it will come.
Discrimination Attorneys in Los Angeles encourage you to make a move. Do not be yet another victim of gender discrimination; instead, fight for your rights and do not let others tell you what to do. Be brave, and do not hesitate to seek help. The law is on your side, and so are we. We will be expecting your call.
