Gender Discrimination Lawyer in Memphis

Offering High-Quality Legal Representation

Federal and Tennessee state laws prohibit discrimination based on an employee's gender. These laws apply equally to males and females. At Donati Law, PLLC, we have assisted countless individuals who have been discriminated against because of their gender. Since 1980, our firm has become known for delivering high-quality legal representation. We passionately believe that no one should have to be a victim of gender discrimination, especially in the workplace.

Gender discrimination can come in various forms, including discrimination in:

  • Pay
  • Hiring
  • Promotions

How to tell if you are the victim of gender discrimination:

  • Female and males that hold the same position are given different responsibilities based on their sex
  • Males and females who hold the same position receive different pay
  • Different interview questions based on the gender of the candidate
  • Instances of sexual harassment occur

Standing Up for the Rights of Workers

Pregnancy discrimination and sexual harassment are two common forms of discrimination. At Donati Law, PLLC, our Memphis employment law attorneys have seen improvements in the frequency and severity of gender discrimination, but, amazingly, employers at both large and small businesses still offer different pay scales on the basis of an employee's sex. We also frequently see a valued employee become a non-performer in the eyes of her employer after she informs them that she is pregnant. Our team stands up for the rights of workers.
