Sex Discrimination

Sex discrimination is defined as an adverse action based on your sex. It includes discrimination or harassment related to pregnancy. Here are some examples of laws that could protect you from discrimination based on sex and gender:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • The Equal Pay Act
  • Family and Medical Leave Act

These laws regulate workplace behavior, pay rates, termination, and maternity leave, among other things. It is important to understand which laws apply to your case. Our attorneys have extensive experience making these types of analyses — please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

Age Discrimination

Age discrimination laws generally protect the rights of those over 40 years old. The protections may cover discrimination at work, unjust termination, or even your rights when you are applying for a new job. Here are some important laws:

  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967
  • Older Workers Benefit Protection Act
  • Continuation of Health Coverage (COBRA)

From protecting your status as a person over 40 to formalizing the extension of your health benefits, these laws could offer some powerful options. Please contact us to understand how they might apply to your situation.
