Gender discrimination can happen to both women and men. No one should have to experience any kind of discrimination at the workplace, let alone discrimination on the basis of their sex. Gender discrimination makes the work environment intolerable and can affect your ability to do your job and earn money for your family. One of our employment attorneys in San Antonio can help.

What Is Considered Gender Discrimination?

Instances of gender discrimination can be subtle or obvious.  You may have been discriminated against by a co-worker, employer, or even a subcontractor or other party who came to your workplace to do business.  You may suspect that you weren’t hired due to your gender or perhaps you feel you were terminated because of your sex.  Common examples of gender discrimination are:

  • Being passed over for promotion despite tenure or qualifications
  • Unwelcome physical contact, proximity or sexual communications
  • Policies which are not work-related but which inherently exclude a gender
  • Earning lower wages than another of the opposite sex doing the same work
  • Being held to a dress code based on arbitraries assigned to a sex

Why Choose an Employment Lawyer with Espinoza & Brock for Your Gender Discrimination Case?

For us, workers’ rights law and gender discrimination cases are personal.  Our founder, Javier Espinoza, is a first-generation American immigrant who comes from a family of hard workers.  His father worked construction and both of his parents urged Javier and his siblings to take their education seriously so they could make a difference for themselves, their families and their communities. Javier took that to heart and worked construction himself while going to college.  He prides himself on his heritage and is outspoken in communities across the state to help bring about changes in the policies for workers.  No matter your gender or legal status, we believe in workers getting justice when they have been mistreated. Likewise, Javier’s partner, Lara Brock, comes from a working-class family and understands the value of each and every worker in our economy and in shaping our communities.

Lara serves as the President-Elect of the Bexar County Women’s Bar Association, founded the Women’s Caucus for the San Antonio Trial Lawyers Association and is a steering committee member of the Women’s Caucus of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association. She has a leading role in the Texas Trial Lawyers Association for Continuing Legal Education because she wants to promote excellence in service amongst her peers in the field.  Lara works to improve employment conditions and protect workers’ rights, especially when it comes to discrimination against women, sexual harassment and other gender discrimination issues.  Your rights are important so we don’t back down when it comes to making sure you are heard.
