Fighting Your Employer For Being Fired Wrongly

As a woman, it can be very difficult to survive in the working world and the business world and if you have been fired unfairly based on your gender, you have the right to sue your employer. You would be surprised to find out just how many women are the brunt of harassment based on their gender and also receive unfair treatment in the work place. Many women receive lower wages for the same work that a man would do and unfortunately, most people simply accept this as the way of the world. Employers speak to their female employees suggestively, pass sexual hints and there are times when women are even given unfair dress codes simply based on their gender because they expect their female employees to use their gender to bring in sales and money which is more or less, prostitution even though they are not exchanging actual sexual intercourse and therefore, if you feel that you have been discriminated against, you should fight for yourself and also for every other woman who has had to suffer in the work place. 

Understand what constitutes abuse

There are many things that constitute abuse that we do not quite treat as abuse simply because it has been happening for so many decades and it has been normalized in the society that we live in. Unfair dismissal based on the fact that you are not dressed the way the company expects you to dress for example can be taken as abuse if the men in the company are not expected to dress the same way.

There are also times when women are slowly moved out of the company when they get married because the company realizes that she may get pregnant and therefore may need to be given maternity leave however, if you are a hardworking employee, you will be able to fight your case through an employment advocacy group who will be able to give you good advice.

It is a sad fact that many companies do not give the respect they would give to their male colleagues to a female colleague and this is unfortunately the state of the world in general. Women in every company are often subjected to unnecessary and inappropriate questions, inappropriate staring, gesturing and various other abusive treatment by male colleagues and if you feel threatened, you can sue even if it was not the owner of the company subjecting you to that abuse because the company is liable to protect all of its employees at all times.
