Sex Discrimination & Equal Pay

An employer may not terminate an employee or take other adverse job action on account of sex or pregnancy.  Sex discrimination is different than sexual harassment.  Sex discrimination means that an employee is singled out and treated different than employees of the opposite sex.  It can apply for either males or females, although the Equal Pay Act is only applicable to help females achieve pay equality with males.  For all other types of sexual discrimination claims based upon an adverse job action a charge of discrimination must be filed with the EEOC first.  An adverse job action includes termination, demotion, failure to promote, reduction in work hours, unfavorable job assignments or involuntary transfers.  If you feel that you have been discriminated against based on sex, we invite you to call Arendall and Associates to set up a free consultation with an attorney.  Or, if you prefer, you can submit your information online by clicking here.
