Types of discrimination women face in the workplace

There are different reasons that employers in California make the employment decisions for their business. Most of the time, the decisions are made based on the employees' job performances. So, if the employees are doing a good job for the company, they may receive a raise or promotion. On the opposite side of the spectrum, if employees are not doing a good job, they could be demoted or terminated. However, as long as these decisions are based solely on job performance, there is nothing wrong with it.

From time to time, though, employment decisions are not based solely on job performance and may even constitute unlawful discrimination.

Women in particular have faced gender discrimination which has led to unfair and illegal treatment in the workplace. There are many ways that they women discriminated against as well. This discrimination can occur in both the hiring and firing of employees, promotions and changing job classifications, as well as employees' pay levesl and the benefits they receive, women have also been the victim of sexual harassment.

If women have been the victims of gender discrimination or harassment, they could be entitled to compensation for the damages caused by the discrimination. This compensation can be for the lost income because they were not hired or were fired for discriminatory purposes. They may also be able to receive what they should have earned if men were paid more for the same job or received better benefits. Women may also be entitled to compensation for emotional distress caused by sexual harassment in the workplace.

There have been improvements in California, but many women still face discrimination and harassment in the workplace. These are sometimes difficult cases to prove. However, these women deserve compensation for their damages and may find pursuing a claim worthwhile. Experienced attorneys understand the importance of this compensation and may be a useful resource.
