Sex and Gender Discrimination

Fighting Sex and Gender Discrimination in New Jersey

Employment attorneys assert rights in the workplace to maximize your compensation

In the past several decades there have been major strides toward gender equality, yet discrimination in New Jersey workplaces continues to affect employees every day. At Deutsch Atkins, P.C., one of Northern New Jersey’s largest plaintiffs employment law firms, our discrimination attorneys have extensive experience protecting employee rights. We represent workers at all levels, with an emphasis on senior executives and management, where gender discrimination is still most pernicious. If you have encountered sex or gender discrimination in your NJ workplace, our firm can explain your legal rights and remedies.

Forms of gender discrimination in New Jersey workplaces

State and federal law forbids unequal treatment based on a person’s gender in any aspect of employment, including:

  • Hiring
  • Firing
  • Pay
  • Job assignments
  • Promotions
  • Layoffs
  • Training
  • Fringe benefits

Sexual harassment is gender discrimination. Traditionally, women have been the targets of gender discrimination, especially in corporate leadership positions. Today, transgender individuals are often targets of hostile workplace discrimination. Men can suffer from gender discrimination as well, especially in work environments where they are in the minority and have women superiors. Our gender discrimination lawyers are fully devoted to protecting the rights of both men and women throughout New Jersey.

The experience to give you the assistance you require

Our founding partners have more than 50 years of experience as employee rights attorneys. Together with our associates, our firm has recovered millions of dollars for thousands of clients. When you come to our offices, we work to ensure that your interests are fully protected. We understand the serious consequences that employment discrimination can have on all aspects of your life. Although we cannot change the treatment you have received, we work to ensure that your employer is held accountable for any unlawful behavior.

Wrongful termination due to gender bias

We represent people who have encountered gender discrimination in New Jersey workplaces across a wide range of circumstances, but we truly focus our practice on protecting the rights of people who have experienced wrongful termination or constructive discharge. This includes people who have been fired or forced to resign as the result of gender discrimination and people who have become unable to work because gender discrimination has made the work environment completely intolerable.
