New York City Sex Discrimination Lawyers
Despite numerous laws and cultural changes over the decades, there are still large disparities between men and women in the workplace. From the types of jobs that men and women get to the pay that each gender receives, sex discrimination is, unfortunately, still an issue in the U.S.
Sex discrimination in the workplace can occur in a number of ways, from denying a woman a job or promotion to unfairly compensating a woman for their work because of their gender. At Cary Kane we know all too well how women working in New York City are affected by sex discrimination and the harm it can cause. Fortunately, there are laws in place that give people who suffer this kind of mistreatment the resources and legal protections they need to hold employers who sexually discriminate accountable. If you believe that you are the victim of sex discrimination call (212) 868-6300 for a consultation.
Protections against Sex Discrimination
If you work in New York City there are laws in place that provide protection and legal support to women workers who have been victimized by sex discrimination. These laws include:
- Equal Pay Act of 1963 – this act requires employers to provide equivalent compensation to men and women who perform jobs with similar tasks and have similar experience.
- Civil Rights Act of 1964 – this act states that employers cannot discriminate against both potential and current employees on the basis of their gender in the terms and conditions of their employment.
With the protections afforded by these laws and agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the New York State Division of Human Rights, and the New York City Commission on Civil Rights, women who have been mistreated due to their gender can seek the justice that they need.
