Work With Our Female-Owned Employment Law Firm
We are a female-owned firm, and our employment attorneys understand the deeply-ingrained gender biases that are often substituted for legitimate employment criteria, particularly when companies are making compensation and promotion decisions at the executive or senior management levels. Our attorneys have experience litigating cases that rely heavily on statistics and social science research to support claims of sex discrimination. Contact and employment attorney at The Noble Law.
Our employment law firm assists clients with pursuing sex discrimination claims for:

It is important to note that your employer is prohibited from retaliating against you for filing a complaint, even if the complaint is later found to be invalid, as long as you filed the complaint subject to a good faith belief that you were doing the right thing. The law is designed this way to encourage you to speak up to defend your own rights or the rights of others in the workplace.

The gender gap, or gender pay gap, refers to the difference in earning between women and men. Women still consistently earn less than men, and that gap only widens for women of color. A multitude of factors drive the gender wage gap, including women driven from the workforce to be caregivers for family members or children, the “marriage premium”, differences in the industry worked, and the lower pay for so-called “women’s work.” And whild gender-based pay discrimination is illegal, it is still a wide-spred practice, especially among women of color.
The gender gap thrives in workplaces where employees fear workplace retaliation — learn more about how the law defines retaliation and your protections under employment law here on our Workplace Retaliation & Whistleblower Law Page.
The workplace is not always supportive of pregnant women, and you may experience discrimination that could negatively affect your career. Know that there are employment laws and employment attorneys like those at The Noble Law that are here to protect you. No one should be treated unfairly because of pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition. Under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, employers also can’t refuse to hire a pregnant woman simply on the basis of her being pregnant. Learn more about the rights of pregnant women in the workplace here on our Pregnancy Discrimination page.
Gender Equality And LGBTQ Rights
You are protected by Title VII from discrimination against an individual because of gender identity, including transgender status or because of sexual orientation. The law forbids sex discrimination in all work situations and aspects of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, training, and more.
