Gender Discrimination

image_gender-Discrimination2Some of our notable and successful sex and gender cases include Connolly v. Burger King, in which we established that complaints of sexual harassment by other women in the workplace could be discovered in order to prove violation of the NJLAD; Spearman v. Department of Corrections, in which it was alleged that a female officer was retaliated against after complaining about being forced to strip search male inmates, and Robinson v. Burlington County, in which a female corrections officer was sexually assaulted at work by a superior officer.

We are seeing more and more workplace problems arising as a result of pregnancy and parenting leaves. Many employers do not understand that expectant mothers are entitled to up to 12 weeks of leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act for pregnancy-related and childbirth-related disability plus up to 12 weeks of bonding time after the child is born. In addition, the Law Against Discrimination requires an employer to provide even more time as a reasonable accommodation for disability unless they can demonstrate an undue hardship. Our employment attorneys can assist you with these problems and other gender and sex related problems arising out of your employment. Many of these gender discrimination cases in NJ are handled on a contingent fee basis (no fee unless recovery).
