Sexist Conduct in the Workplace

Sexual Harassment Law Firm Helping Clients throughout Southern California

Sexist conduct is prejudicial or discriminatory behavior against an individual based on his or her gender. Sexism in the workplace consists of attitudes and behavior based on stereotypes and often results in discrimination or devaluation of a person based on sex, especially towards women, such as restricted job opportunities, lower pay for women doing the same job as men, derogatory remarks about body parts or appearance, and more.

It is often based on the belief that one sex is superior to, more competent than, or more valuable than the other. In the case of women in the workplace, sexist conduct generally devalues them, fostering inequality between the sexes in job placement, wages, promotions, social conduct in the workplace, and other employment benefits.

If you believe you have been the victim of gender discrimination or sexual harassment, both of which may be considered sexist conduct in the workplace, you may have a legitimate legal case which should be evaluated by a Southern California sexual harassment attorney.

At Harris Grombchevsky LLP, we represent clients throughout Orange County and the surrounding areas of Southern California in these matters. You are protected by California law, specifically the California Fair Employment and Housing Act. You do not have to tolerate sexist conduct in the workplace and you may seek compensation, including damages for emotional distress and punitive damages in cases where the law has been violated.

Gender discrimination consists of adverse actions taken against an individual that would not have occurred had that individual been the opposite sex. Examples of this are supervisors or other personnel who make derogatory remarks about women in the workplace or who use slurs or degrading labels when referring to them.

Other sexist conduct includes unwanted sexual advances, graphic comments about one's body or body parts, asking discriminatory questions in a job interview, and limiting your opportunities at work based on your sex. In any situation of this type, you should report the situation to the proper person in your organization and follow up by consulting with a Southern California sexual harassment lawyer at our firm if you do not get satisfactory results.

Contact a Southern California sexual harassment attorney at the firm if you have been subjected to sexist conduct in the workplace.
