Some Common Examples Sex Discrimination or Sexual Harassment Claims
The following common actions could give rise to a discrimination or sexual harassment claim:
- Sex-discrimination involving hiring — If your qualifications are the same or superior to other applicants, but you were passed on because the company (or its customers) was more comfortable dealing with someone of a different gender, you may have a sex discrimination claim.
- Sex-discrimination involving firing — If your qualifications are substantially similar or superior to those of your co-workers or peers, but you were fired because of your gender, you may have a sex discrimination claim.
- Sex-discrimination involving promotions — If you were passed over for promotion because of your sex, that is sex discrimination. If you were passed over for promotion because you refused sexual advances or refused a quid pro quo (sex for promotion) offer from your boss, then you may have a sexual harassment claim as well.
- Sex-discrimination involving benefits — If you are not receiving the same benefits at work as your counterpart of another gender, or if you are denied maternity leave or other disability benefits provided to co-workers of another gender, then you may have a claim for sex discrimination.
- Sex-discrimination involving job classifications — If you are not receiving the pay and grade for the increased work you perform, while your counterparts of another sex are receiving an increase in pay or new job title for their increased workload, you may have a claim for sex discrimination.
- Sexual harassment in the workplace — If you are the recipient of unwanted touching, repeated requests for dates, sexual innuendos or comments about your physical attributes, or if you are being subjected to jokes or talk of a sexual nature that make you uncomfortable, then you may have a claim for sexual harassment in the workplace.
