Equal Pay and Equal Opportunity Representation in Missouri and Illinois
Riggan Law Firm, LLC represents individuals who have been discriminated against because of their sex or gender. Sex discrimination involves treating an applicant or employee unfavorably because of that person's sex. Such discrimination can also involve treating someone less favorably because of their connection with an organization or group that is associated with people of a certain sex.
By law, employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees in numerous operational processes, such as:
- job assignments,
- fringe benefits, and
- establishing other terms or conditions of employment.
An employment policy or practice that applies to everyone, regardless of sex, can be unlawful if it has a negative impact on people of a certain sex and is not necessary for job performance or the operation of the business.
Examples of Discriminatory Behavior Based on Sex
Some common examples of sex discrimination include:
- members of one gender being consistently rewarded and promoted over another gender;
- an employer's use of gender stereotypes in the workplace;
- unequal pay for men and women performing the same job; and
- pregnancy discrimination or discrimination based on maternity or child rearing.
