Denied perks and training that men receive. Do I have a case?

I am a 45 year old woman with 6 plus years with my employer. The males in my unit are routinely given perks the woman are not (golf dates, concerts,etc.) in addition to educational & travel opportunities. Additionally younger women are given training & opportunities that I have been specifically denied. Finally, they have radically changed my job duties, after asking my opinion, and completely ignoring those opinions. Do you think a lawyer would be willing to take on my case?

Gender plus age -- discrimination against older wo

Based on what you wrote, there is a potential claim of discrimination or harassment based on gender and what is called a "gender-plus" -- i.e. discrimination against older women but not against males or younger women.

The only way to learn if a lawyer will take your case is to actually seek one out. If you are in the Bay Area or Southern California and want to pursue this, you can call me at 415-487-0426 for a consult.

Good luck,

Richard Vaznaugh.
