Sexual Discrimination

Hire a Seattle Employment Law Attorney

It is illegal to discriminate against an employee in the terms and conditions of employment because of that employee's sex. Sex discrimination in employment appears in a variety of forms, such as unequal pay for equal work, failure to promote or refusal to hire based on an employee's sex. Sexual harassment and discrimination based on pregnancy are also forms of sex discrimination. Employment decisions based on assumptions about employees' gender roles and/or family caregiver responsibilities outside of work can also constitute sex discrimination.

State and federal law have different deadlines for filing a timely claim of discrimination. If you believe you are experiencing racial discrimination at work, contact an attorney at Frank Freed Subit & Thomas for an assessment of your rights and remedies.
