Attorney Hamilton Fights For Women’s Rights In The Workplace
From Women to Watch, to Women of Excellence, to Best of the Bar, to inclusion on the Super Lawyers list, to Attorney For Justice, to Voted Best Attorney (twice), Power Player (12 consecutive years) to PRESIDENT, Women’s Rights
Back in 2017, the Pew Research Center reported findings that 42% of women had faced discrimination in their jobs. Women face multiple forms of abuse in the workplace from having their ideas ignored, credit being given to male employees for their work, or sexual harassment by co-workers/superiors.
Attorney Hamilton has made it a priority in her career to help women in the workplace fight back against these discriminations. She is a hands-on attorney that works with her clients from the moment they walk into her office, because she is dedicated to helping her clients fight back.
Attorney Myra Hamilton advocates for women’s rights every time she accepts Charges for Discrimination based upon but not limited to sex, gender, sexual harassment, discrimination of allegations based upon pregnancy, retaliation for filing charges or complaining to their Managers as well as pay discrimination.
Late summer of 2022, Attorney Hamilton was asked by a representative of the National Trial Lawyers to serve as President for Women’s Rights segment of their group. During the height of the pandemic, Attorney Hamilton helped working mothers and single women serving as head of household who were impacted financially through the onset of the pandemic that impacted housing and the ability to pay rent.
Attorney Hamilton provides counsel and guidance to women who want to challenge unlawful and unfair pay discrimination in their workplace. The Equal Pay Act requires that everyone, women and men, be given the same level of wages for the same type of work in the same establishment. The jobs need to be substantially equal, but are not required to be identical in nature. It is job content, rather than job titles, that matters for determining if the jobs are substantially equal. You need to know that Employers should not pay unequal wages to women who perform jobs that require substantially equal effort, skill, and responsibility as men and, where the woman (female employee) performs that job under similar working conditions within the same establishment as her male coworker.
Regarding pregnancy discrimination allegations, the bottom line is that even in 2022 heading into 2023 women STILL are subjected to pregnancy discrimination as employees and even as applicants. Any female applicant or employee can challenge pregnancy discrimination.
Also, unfortunately, some women must exercise their federal employee rights by filing Charges of Discrimination for failure to accommodate pregnancy-related work restrictions.
The importance of women’s rights and gender equality should not be underestimated. Ever. Never. Not even.
Did you know that the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is responsible for enforcing Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on sex in any aspect of employment?
Women employees need to know their rights in the workplace regarding pay discrimination.
