Here are a few key steps to follow on how to prove gender discrimination in the workplace:

Be sure to keep records

  • Note the time and place of each incident and any witnesses to the discriminatory actions.
  • Keep copies of inappropriate photos, voicemails, and texts you may have received.

Report all incidents to your supervisor

  • Go on record with your supervisor and the company’s human resources department.
  • Be sure to get everything regarding your complaints in writing.
  • If your company has an anti-harassment policy, be sure to follow the protocol for reporting violations.

It is important to note that you should continue to do a good job. Records of your job performance evaluations will be handy in most gender discrimination cases.

Consult an attorney

Do not take any determinative action regarding your job, such as resigning, participating in an internal investigation, or filing a complaint with any agency or court until you consult with an attorney.

We have the resources to strengthen your case, and we can examine your case to guide you through the process.

File a Claim

You may also choose to file a claim with agencies such as the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the New York State Division of Human Rights, or the New York City Commission on Human Rights.

EEOC complaints typically have a 180-day deadline from the date of the last incident, but state agencies usually give people about three years to file. Complaints may be filed over the phone, online, or in person using a form.

Remember, you are protected from retaliation from your employer even if the court dismisses the gender discrimination claim.
