Gender Gap and Glass Ceiling

Gender Gap and Glass Ceiling

The Noble Law Firm provides counseling and litigation services to women who have been subjected to illegal and discriminatory practices with respect to pay, promotions and other terms, conditions and privileges of employment that affect the advancement of women in the workplace. We are committed to breaking the “glass ceiling” one client at a time.

The Firm assists clients with pursuing sex discrimination claims for:

  • Unequal or discriminatory compensation practices
  • Failure to promote
  • Discriminatory job classifications or assignments
  • Failure to afford training opportunities
  • Failure to hire
  • Exclusion from business opportunities (such as client entertainment)
  • Wrongful termination

The Noble Law Firm’s services available to female employees seeking redress for sex discrimination include:

  • Counseling clients on the law and their rights
  • Assisting clients with requesting a “salary review” and/or bench-marking their compensation
  • Conducting investigations into client allegations of discrimination
  • Filing charges with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
  • Filing charges with State Equal Employment Opportunity authorities
  • Negotiation and/or mediation of claims with employers to resolve the case without litigation
  • Filing and litigating individual, class action or collective action cases

We are a female-owned Firm, and our 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.
