In their jobs, schools and other arenas, women and men in America are entitled to equal treatment under the law. The reality, however, is that employers, colleges, and even family court judges sometimes take actions that reflect gender bias. If you’ve faced discrimination on the basis of your gender, Kramer Law, P.C. will uphold your rights and seek appropriate relief. Whether you’re a woman who’s been denied equal pay at work or a divorced father who’s been discriminated against in a child custody battle, I will provide strong advocacy and informed counsel in representing your rights to equal treatment under the law.
There are, unfortunately, many areas of life in which gender discrimination exists. I handle cases for both men and women treated unequally in:
If your sex has been used against you in any of these areas, I will seek all appropriate remedies under the law, which may include monetary damages and injunctive relief.
The law guarantees male and female students equal opportunities in academics and extra-curricular activities, including sports, at most institutions that receive federal funding. While Title IX was intended to level the playing field in women’s college sports, discrimination still exists in athletics as well as in these areas:
If your rights to Title IX protections have been violated, I will hold the offending parties accountable for your mistreatment.
While progress has been made in establishing equality in the workplace, sex discrimination still occurs, affecting not only a victim’s ability to earn a living but creating an environment in which the worker’s morale is compromised, diminishing their ability to do their job effectively. I represent clients who’ve suffered discrimination in the workplace over issues such as:
Workplace discrimination affects not only the victim but can also create a climate of mistrust within an organization. If your gender has been used against you when seeking employment, or you suspect you’ve been fired on the basis of your sex, I will investigate your situation and offer skilled representation that may include reinstatement to your original or similar position, lost wages, or other awards.
Housing discrimination based on sex is illegal under federal law. If you believe you’ve been denied a rental property or a mortgage to buy a home because of your gender, I can help you file a fair housing complaint with the federal government and see it through to successful conclusion.
Though bias against divorced fathers in custody, support and visitation matters is less prevalent than it once was, there are still cases where men feel women are unfairly favored in family court decisions. If you’re a father whose custodial rights have been limited simply because you’re the male parent, Kramer Law, P.C. can help you assert your parental rights and fight decisions made on the basis of gender discrimination.
If you are the victim of gender discrimination at work, school, or any other arena where the law prohibits such treatment, Kramer Law, P.C. will represent your rights to equal treatment under the law and guide you through your case at each step.
