Gender Discrimination Lawyer Serving San Antonio

Our discrimination lawyers represent employees who are victims of gender discrimination in the workplace.

It is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Texas Labor Code for employers to discriminated against employees because of gender.  This not only includes discrimination based on the gender of the individual (example: favoring male employees over female employees), but this also includes claims for sexual harassment in the workplace.

Our Employment Lawyers Fight Against Sexual Harassment in the WorkplaceThere are two types of sexual harassment claims.  The first claim is known as the "hostile work environment."  Hostile workplace claims occur when an employee is subjected to severe and/or pervasive sexual harassment.  Examples of these claims include pornography, repeated touching, sexually charged comments or jokes, and even sexual bullying.

The second type of sexual harassment claim is known as "quid pro quo."  These types of claims arise when an employer bases an employment decisions in exchange for sexual acts.  Quid pro quo claims include hinting that an employee will receive employment perks (examples: better schedule, promotions, raises) if the employee is receptive to sexual advances.

It is important to note that both females and males may bring a claim for sexual harassment. Additionally, courts now recognize same-sex sexual harassment.  Contact our discrimination lawyers if you are the victim of sexual harassment in the workplace.

Discrimination Attorneys Fighting For Equal PayUnder the Equal Pay Act of 1963, an employer must pay men and women the same pay for equal work.  This law does not require that the jobs be exactly the same, the jobs need only be substantially equal.  In addition to the Equal Pay Act, Title VII also prohibits gender discrimination in the workplace.

In 2009, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was passed. This law extends the limitations period for those employees who were unaware of the discrimination affecting equal pay.

Contact our gender discrimination lawyers to make sure that you receive equal pay for equal work.

Employers May Not Retaliate Against Employees Reporting Gender DiscriminationAn employer is prohibited from retaliating against an employee who opposes or reports gender discrimination in the workplace.  This includes reporting or opposing sexual harassment in the workplace.  Our employment lawyers fight against employer retaliation.

I would recommend the Law Office of Rob WIley, P.C. to anybody needing assistance with employment rights. They did an incredible job of handling my case professionally and in a very resonable time frame. In my initial consultation with Rob Wiley I was given a very straight forward analysis of my claims after which Fadi Yousef was the attorney assigned to my case. Working with Fadi was the best. He showed care and a true concern for the direction and result of my lawsuit. Fadi was always available and was in constant communication with me throughout. I thank Fadi Yousef, Rob Wiley and his team for doing a phenomenal job, they were an absolute pleasure to work with. R.G.

Rasha, Eric and Rob did it again a Second time around! I'll admit, they are truly the BEST employment lawyers out here in the Metroplex! Not only they won a case against my previous employer, they also won my unemployment insurance (UI) case as well! It is such a relief and a huge burden off my shoulders about not worrying how I'm going to pay my bills now and provide food for my family. I can't say enough how awesome they are and how far they go to make sure you are taken well care of. Thank you so much Rasha, Eric and Rob for all that you did for me! J.T.
