In the past, primarily females had been involved in gender discrimination cases. But our progressive California State Legislature and the feds decided to create a whole new class of victims who can now sue. This is even though some jurors and employers believe that only biological males and females should be considered for discrimination protections. Below, our Los Angeles personal injury attorney, Michael Ehline, discusses gender discrimination in L.A. and getting superior compensation results.

In any event, the floodgates are open. So now we are dealing with issues like men dressed as women sharing restrooms with girls and a whole new point of parents’ rights versus the rights of cross-dressers, etc.
This relatively new protected class includes people who “identify” themselves as:
As discussed above, gender partiality is a significant new area of legal concern. This is because of the increasing number of openly gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender self-identifying people. Many of these people are now visibly and vocally entering the workforce.
So now, discrimination claims by them have skyrocketed in recent years. There are state and federal laws to protect employees: these mandate equal access and protection in the workplace.
But even with these new laws in place to protect them, discrimination, the victims say, occurs too often. Primarily, it is happening due to these individuals’ sex or gender identification.
Many older employers and non-millennials were taught in science and biology classes that there are two sexes. This has been the accepted science for thousands of years.
But powerful lobbyists commissioned their own “scientific studies” and used the courts and lobbying to change male and female definitions to be expanded into “emotional belief.”
So now, if you think you are a girl, for example, you are. And it matters not whether you were born with a penis or a vagina. All that matters is what you believe you are to give you rights to sue someone who disagrees with you.
Younger employees who attended government-run schools especially believe in this new personal belief system.
This automation is happening to avoid any problems with their profits and investors. But for now, some employers still need to hire people to run their storefronts.
To safeguard the law, Ehline Law Firm works to protect employees who get insulted per the statute’s terms. Many of these people could be your mom, brother, sister, or a close friend.
Often you could feel emotionally robbed due to your choice of who you sleep with or whether you choose to shave your legs and wear makeup.
So Ehline Law Firm has made itself available to help you safeguard the rights of people like you who believe you are another gender. Even if your chromosomes and science say otherwise, we can help.
WHO CAN SUE? Many hostile employers commonly know people who can sue now as transvestites, trannies, or “gender confused.” And many companies look at them as outcasts and bad for business.
But now it can affect these other groups too. Discrimination has the effect of limiting their opportunities in the workplace. But this includes such things as pay raises, work schedules, promotions, etc.
Sex and gender inequality have two different meanings. However, each can suffer intolerance in the workplace.
So you may suffer bias in the workplace due to this identity. But it is because while you are genetically male, and you identify with and try and act like a female.
Both of these groups are employees protected by law against prejudice in the workplace.
So you could have a case if you got passed over for:
Legal professionals handling cases of discrimination have found many types of injustice. So even though companies claim to treat employees equally, their actions may be different.
Patterns of behavior can appear overtime after the employee got hired. These include the failure of pay raises and promotions. But as discussed, this behavior generally affects women in the workplace. Also, gender discrimination can take various forms.
So it can include things such as a female employee hitting the proverbial glass ceiling. Usually, this is claiming there is no room for the woman to move up within the company. And on the outside, this may seem true. But actually, men are still getting promoted rather than the female or transgender genders, for example.
The female or queer employee working for this type of company may also be unable to move to similar positions. So she holds her current job, even though there could be room to move up within the enterprise.
Rarer, but it can happen when men who identify as men can be victims of gender discrimination. These are violations of federal and California law. But often, it gets hidden in companies and challenging with the complexities of the legislation to pursue.
Forget about chances of winning without the assistance of an experienced California discrimination attorney.
But it does not mean they are not discriminating against an employee. It only means they know what they are doing is illegal. So it is just a bunch of mumbo-jumbo saying there is no way we would do that since it is illegal.
