Helping Clients Fight Gender Discrimination in Federal Workplaces
Anyone can experience sex and gender discrimination in the workplace, but typically women and members of the LGBTQ+ community experience workplace discrimination more often.

If you have experienced a violation at work, you may need a gender discrimination lawyer in Houston with experience fighting these cases.

The experienced gender discrimination lawyers in our Houston office have comprehensive knowledge of the state and federal laws needed to understand the complexities of these civil rights cases.
Gender Discrimination in the Workplace
Gender discrimination cases are complex because gender discrimination can be manifested in many ways within the workplace. Federal employers act as at-will employers, which means they can terminate an employee for any legal reason. While a federal employer may terminate an employee for nearly any reason, they must ensure they have not violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act or the Federal Labor Code. These laws provide protections to ensure employers don’t discriminate based on gender or sex.
Gender discrimination happens in the workplace in ways that may be considered subtle. However, these common examples are seen in workplaces across the country:
- Gender salary inequality when both parties are equally qualified to perform the assigned task
- Employers encourage gender-based stereotypes regarding dress, behavior, and actions
- Gender-based hiring, firing, promoting, and suspension
