Sexual Discrimination and Harassment in the Workplace

Sexual discrimination occurs when an employee is treated less favorably than other employees on the basis of his or her sex or gender. Sexual discrimination may occur in the hiring process, promotions, job assignments, training, compensation, and discipline, including termination. Sexual harassment is also a form of sexual discrimination.

Employers are prohibited from making decisions about hiring, compensation, promotions, job assignments and discipline based on gender or sexual orientation, and legal remedies are available to those who have been adversely affected by sexual discrimination in the workplace.

The Law Offices of Fern Trevino has extensive experience representing employees who have been discriminated against on the basis of their sex or gender. In addition to representing Chicago area employees who have been victims themselves, we represent those who have been wrongfully terminated or otherwise retaliated against for having reported discrimination or retaliation.

To learn more about the laws that apply to your particular situation seek legal counsel to learn what options and remedies are available to you.
