Simply put, it is illegal for an employer to discriminate against any individual based on that person’s gender. Whether that discrimination is demonstrated during the hiring process where the employer places a greater emphasis on the gender of the candidate over all other questions and topics or it is exhibited after the candidate is hired by the company and there exists an obvious or even overt denial of fair wages, bonuses, advancement opportunities, benefits, or promotions due to the gender of that employee.
If you believe you have been the victim of gender discrimination, you have a right to fight for damages and compensation to which you are entitled. But keep in mind, and this part is very important, you should always know that filing a claim in which you are seeking damages from an employer is an exceptionally difficult and contentious undertaking. After all, your employer probably doesn’t think he or she has done anything wrong and they will deny every facet of your claim outright.
Furthermore, your employer is going to fight tooth and nail against your claim and he or she has a litany of smart and sophisticated defense lawyers and insurance adjusters on their side, ready to find every possible vulnerability in your claim and loophole in the employment laws of California in a relentless effort to shield your employer from any liability in this matter.
Let’s face it, you do not know the state labor laws in the way these attorneys do. You are fighting a losing battle before you even enter the contest and you are more likely to walk out of any negotiation with next to nothing, that is if you are awarded any compensation at all.
