Coral Gables Gender Discrimination Attorney

Find the right Gender Discrimination attorney in Coral Gables, FL

The Civil Rights Act of 1963 and the Equal Pay Act prohibit employers in Florida against discriminating on the basis of gender. Therefore, gender may not be the basis for any employer decisions regarding pay, hiring policies, or promotion criteria. They must also make sure that working environments will not be hostile towards a specific gender and that the work atmosphere is not overly sexual.

What Must be Proven in a Discrimination Claim?

Under the Equal Pay act, discrimination can be proven if men and women both work in the same place, do the same job, but are still paid differently. Also, discrimination can be proven if the employer in Coral Gables is only hiring or issuing promotions based on one gender. A claim will also prevail if the employer retaliates against workers who seek relief for discrimination.

When is Sexual Harassment Prohibited?

Sexual harassment includes all unwelcome or unwanted conduct of a sexual nature that is directed at the victim, whether it is physical or verbal. Employers in Coral Gables may be held liable for the sexual harassment, even when it was a co-worker who directly engaged in the conduct.

Florida employers who allow conduct to produce an overly sexual work atmosphere may also be held liable for sexual harassment. It is typically somewhat challenging to prove gender discrimination if you don't have an attorney, because certain aspects such as proving intent can be complex. Pursuing a claim also involves following procedures, many of which can be detailed.
