Gender Discrimination

Gender Discrimination Attorneys Serving the Orlando, Florida Area

Although women have made great strides in the fight for equality in the workforce against gender discrimination and unequal pay, gender bias still occurs. Such discrimination continues to create huge barriers at every level of employment. Ongoing struggles include treating women as second class citizens, subscribing to gender stereotypes, and viewing women as sexual objects. Gender discrimination is not exclusive to women and many men struggle with gender discrimination each year. Gender discrimination remains illegal under both federal and state laws.

Our firm has over 60 years of combined experience fighting for the rights of employees, both male and female, who have faced gender discrimination at any point in their career. We will tirelessly champion the rights of any employee whose civil rights have been violated, and consequently experienced a hostile work environment. Our goal is to free our clients from any oppression in the workplace due to gender bias, gender stereotypes, sexual harassment, or gender discrimination.
