Gender Discrimination in Employment
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act specifically prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in hiring, job duties, discipline, promotion and other aspects of employment. The Equal Pay Act requires that women be paid the same as men for the same or comparable jobs. The highest courts have also held that sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination under Title VII.
Jae Lee Law has brought successful lawsuits against New Jersey employers for all forms of gender discrimination:
- Refusal to hire women for "male" jobs
- "Glass ceiling" claims (failure to promote women)
- Unequal pay and job perks
- Unwanted sexual advances or touching
- Other behavior constituting a hostile work environment
