You or someone you know has recently been denied a job opportunity because of their sex or gender. And you want to know is there anything you can do about it, such as file a lawsuit. Hello, I'm Robert Todd, and I'm here to answer the question, "What's involved in a gender discrimination lawsuit?" Well first of all, there are some specific laws, federal laws, that prohibit gender discrimination. One of the most immediate that comes to mind is Title 7 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. There's also the Equal Pay Act of 1963. And then there are a host of laws in each of the 50 states. And there are many, many more laws prohibiting gender discrimination in municipalities and counties around the United States. So you may want to check your specific state in which you were employed, or were trying to seek employment, to see what their laws suggest. And also the municipalities or county in which you were seeking the employment. This is a very complex area of the law, and unless you have handled a law suit on your own, I would strongly recommend that you seek the services of a labor attorney who specializes in gender discrimination cases. I'm Robert Todd, and thank you for watching.
