How Do I Prove Sex Discrimination?
Whether you have a strong discrimination case depends on the facts and circumstances. While all discrimination lawsuits come down to the decision maker's intent, if the decision was on bias or prejudice against a specific class of people, it may fall under anti-discrimination laws. It can be hard to prove what is inside another person's mind, making discrimination lawsuits all the more fact-intensive.
Unless the decision maker admits discrimination on his own, the employee has the burden of collecting and presenting enough evidence to convince the judge or jury. Generally, you must make a “prima facie” case of discrimination. To make a prima facie case, you must show, for example, that:
- You are in a protected class.
- You were qualified for the promotion.
- You didn't get the promotion.
- Your employer promoted someone not in your protected class or continued looking for someone other than you for the position.
Hiring a gender discrimination lawyer can help you win a workplace discrimination case and seek the justice you deserve.
How Do I Prove Pregnancy Discrimination?
You must show that you receive biased or partial treatment from other employees at your workplace because of your pregnancy. There are several ways you can prove discrimination based on the facts of your case.
Sometimes, you may have direct evidence of discrimination, such as your employer admitting to acting with discriminatory intent. However, employers rarely admit to discriminatory thinking. In such cases, you must prove pregnancy discrimination through circumstantial evidence and your case's facts. Speak to a discrimination attorney to help you take appropriate legal action.
