New Orleans, Louisiana Gender Discrimination Attorney
Gender discrimination targets pregnant women, single women, and working moms. Victims of gender discrimination are typically denied employment, passed over for promotions, or denied medical benefits they are eligible to receive. Since gender discrimination involves specific categories of people, it’s important to compare how employees outside of these groups are treated.
When investigating gender discrimination allegations, Glenn C. McGovern reviews human resources records, performance reviews, and promotions in order to identify patterns of discriminatory behavior. Mr. McGovern also interviews managers and supervisors in order to expose contradictions and conflicting statements that are characteristic of attempts to conceal gender discrimination.
If you’ve been denied benefits, pay raises or a promotion due to gender discrimination, contact employment law attorney Glenn C. McGovern today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.

The Impact of Gender Discrimination
Under Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, gender discrimination in the workplace is prohibited. Discrimination can take the form of unequal pay and unequal treatment along gender lines. In this sense, gender discrimination may be systemic to how a company operates rather than what a manager or supervisor says and does.
For instance, pregnant women may be routinely passed over for a promotion because it’s alleged that the job in question requires an employee to travel or be available for customer contact outside of working hours.
At the law office of Glenn C. McGovern, we carefully review job descriptions, pay scales, and patterns of promotions and hiring to determine if gender discrimination is systemic or overt. We compare pay among employees, review employee performance ratings, and point to unequal treatment of employees along gender lines.
