Sex Discrimination

Equal Pay and Equal Opportunity Representation in Missouri and Illinois

Riggan Law Firm represents individuals that have been discriminated against because of their sex or gender. Sex discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of that person's sex. Sex discrimination can also involve treating someone less favorably because of his or her connection with an organization or group that is generally associated with people of a certain sex.

The law forbids discrimination relating to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoffs, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment. An employment policy or practice that applies to everyone, regardless of sex, can be illegal if it has a negative impact on the employment of people of a certain sex and is not necessary for job performance or to the operation of the business.

Some common examples of sex discrimination include:

  • Members of one gender consistently being rewarded and promoted over another gender
  • An employer's use of gender stereotypes in the workplace
  • Unequal pay for men and women doing the same job
  • Pregnancy discrimination or discrimination based on maternity or child rearing
