Davie Gender Discrimination Attorney

Find the right Gender Discrimination attorney in Davie, 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 policies. They must also make sure that working environments will not be hostile towards a particular 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 nonetheless paid differently. Discrimination claims in Davie can be shown where the employer only hires one gender, promotes employees on the basis of gender, or acts in retaliation against a worker who has complained of employer misconduct.

When is Sexual Harassment Prohibited?

All unwelcome sexual behavior directed at the victim, including physical or verbal acts, is considered to be sexual harassment. An employer in Davie can also possibly be held liable for inappropriate behavior that was conducted by an employee's co-worker.

Florida employers who allow conduct to produce an overly sexual work atmosphere may also be held liable for sexual harassment. Without a lawyer, it can be difficult to prove gender discrimination because the details in proving intent are often complicated. Furthermore, there can be specific procedures that must be closely followed in pursuing a claim.

Life in Davie

Davie, Florida is a city filled with history. It was first named Zona. In 1909 a gentleman named Robert Parsell Davie, who was a developer, came into Zona and drained out the swamplands, which were filled with mosquitoes. The people of the city were so thankful that they renamed the city Davie after the developer. Davie is known to many as a "Western town," rather than a city because many people own horses and herd cattle.

Some popular attractions in Davie include the Flamingo Gardens, Miami Dolphins Training Facility, Bergeron Rodeo Grounds, Bamford Sports Complex, and Young At Art Museum.

Now, Davie has become more city-like, and it not just a place filled with horses and cattle. Davie, in fact, is home to many small law offices. Attorneys in Davie are very intelligent, and devoted to serving their community.

All in all, if you are looking for a small town with a lot of love, hospitality, and a legal force presence, Davie is the place to be!
