Gender Discrimination

Pittsburgh Gender Discrimination Lawyers

It is illegal to discriminate against employees based on their gender. Unfortunately, there are numerous people, primarily women, who encounter barriers and pay inequality at the workplace every day. At Logan & Logan, our Pittsburgh gender discrimination attorneys have significant experience representing individuals who have been discriminated against in the workplace. We will work closely with you to set up a plan of action that is appropriate to the unique circumstances of your case.

Taking on All Types of Gender Discrimination Cases

Our Pennsylvania employment law lawyers provide experienced legal help to all employees, from cashiers to corporate executives. Discrimination based on gender can occur in a variety of ways, including:

  • Significant differences in pay
  • Unlawful termination for pregnancy-related issues or taking the full amount of legal maternity leave
  • Glass ceiling issues, such as getting passed over for promotions
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) discrimination
  • Sexual harassment

Regardless of how the discrimination occurred, you need to know that you have protected equal rights under Title VII of the federal civil rights law, as well as protection under Pennsylvania law. Our attorneys will meet with you to determine whether you have a viable case and will work tirelessly to protect your rights.

Do Not Delay Getting Legal Help

Oftentimes, people may hesitate to complain about workplace discrimination because they are afraid their employer will punish them. However, if your employer does take adverse action because you filed a complaint, our lawyers can help you file a retaliation claim against your employer.

It is also important to seek legal guidance from our attorneys at Logan & Logan in Pittsburgh. The deadline for filing a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC) is 300 days from the date of the discrimination. The deadline for filing with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission (PHRC) is 180 days. The sooner you get in touch with us, the sooner we can investigate your claims while the facts are still fresh, and before a deadline passes.
