Discrimination & Harassment


Outten & Golden attorneys represent victims of sex discrimination. Common means of discrimination include compensation, promotions, transfers, and account assignments. Women who complain about sex discrimination may also face illegal retaliation. We have successfully* represented thousands of women who have suffered discrimination in the workplace.

Before a woman may sue her employer in court for sex discrimination, she must file a charge with a local agency and/or with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”). There are deadlines for filing charges, so employees who believe that they have experienced sex discrimination should consult with an attorney as soon as possible.

Outten & Golden lawyers have obtained redress* for our clients in sex discrimination and retaliation cases through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and litigation, including in high-profile cases like a $12 million recovery from Morgan Stanley for one individual. Outten & Golden attorneys have also represented women in many sex discrimination class actions and have reached settlement agreements on behalf of our clients against MetLife, Smith Barney, and other corporations.
