Earning a living should never involve the indignities of gender or sexual orientation discrimination. Various federal statutes and the Washington Law Against Discrimination (WLAD) prohibit sex discrimination in the form of unequal pay, failure to promote qualified candidates, pregnancy discrimination, retaliation, sexual harassment, and hostile work environment. In 2006, the WLAD was amended to include sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes.
The men and women at Schroeter Goldmark & Bender have worked tirelessly on behalf of clients to safeguard the right to a safe and discrimination-free workplace. If you have faced sexual harassment or illegal discrimination in the workplace, we may be able to help you recover your lost wages and benefits as well as compensation for emotional distress.
When to file
You have a limited time to protect your legal claims; failure to take action within a certain period of time (depending on the claim and where you work) may bar you from ever filing your case in court. SGB can help you determine the relevant filing deadlines for your case. Learn more about filing a discrimination claim.
