Are you a victim of sex discrimination at work?

Sex discrimination is unacceptable and inappropriate in any workplace. West Virginia workers who have been treated differently at work because of their gender have the right to take actions and seek legal resolutions to their situations. If you are unsure if you are a victim of sex discrimination, it can be beneficial to seek a case evaluation to understand the available legal options.

Sex discrimination is any behavior or treatment that negatively impacts a person's employ mentor the terms of his or her job. For example, an employer cannot treat an employee differently because of his or her gender. Typically, sex discrimination is based on stereotypical assumptions or because an employee may not conform to what is considered to be gender norms.

If you have lost your job or were passed over for a promotion in lieu of a person of the opposite gender, you may be a victim of sex discrimination. This type of discrimination may also include unwanted sexual advances, inappropriate verbal comments or physical contact of a sexual nature. If you have been subjected to degrading or inappropriate comments about your gender, you may be a victim.

When the conditions of your job are affected by the inappropriate behavior of a co-worker or employer, you may have a case. West Virginia victims of sex discrimination may feel overwhelmed or embarrassed, but they do not have to suffer alone. Find out if you have grounds to take legal action by seeking an evaluation of your case with an experienced lawyer. If a civil claim is an appropriate course of action, you may be eligible for compensatory damages.
