If you are searching for a gender discrimination lawyer in Columbus, the employment attorneys at The Friedmann Firm can help you.
What laws prohibit gender discrimination in Ohio?
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, along with Ohio’s anti-discrimination laws, prohibits discrimination based on sex/gender. Title VII and Ohio’s anti-discrimination laws also protect employees against sexual harassment, a form of gender discrimination. The Columbus gender discrimination lawyers at The Friedmann Firm have experience litigating claims based on gender discrimination and sexual harassment.
Title VII covers all private employers, state and local governments, and educational institutions that employ 15 or more individuals. These laws also cover private and public employment agencies, labor organizations, and joint labor management committees controlling apprenticeship and training. Ohio’s anti-discrimination laws protect people who work for smaller businesses with a lesser number of employees so do not lose hope if you are not protected by Title VII.
What is gender discrimination?
Gender discrimination occurs when an employer treats employees differently because of sex or gender or terminates employees because of sex or gender. Title VII also prohibits employers from retaliating against an employee who complains he or she was sexually harassed at work. If you complain to your employer about gender discrimination or sexual harassment (of you or another person), you are protected from retaliation and cannot be terminated because of your complaint. If you feel you have been retaliated against, call a gender discrimination attorney in Columbus Ohio today to discuss your options.
Gender discrimination can take many forms in the workplace. Some examples include consistent promotion of men over women, systematically paying men more than women for the same or similar positions, sexual harassment (opposite sex and same sex) or discrimination based on pregnancy. Pregnancy discrimination is a form of gender discrimination. Women often feel there is a “glass ceiling” at work, preventing them from reaching the highest positions within the company. This is another form of gender discrimination you may encounter. Your employer must offer the same benefits to male and female employees. It cannot offer more desirable benefits to males and not offer those same benefits to female. There are many other forms of gender discrimination so it is always best to discuss your situation with a Columbus gender discrimination attorney to evaluate the situation.

But Rachel listened, asked questions and took time to really understand me and my priorities. I felt calm, supported and excited for the first time in weeks after talking to her!! We worked together to review everything, set expectations and meet my priorities! Thanks Rachel and team for all your work!!!
Rachel Friedmann of the Friedman Firm was my attorney for a very recent legal matter. I would highly recommend Rachel based on her legal knowledge, her honest appraisal of the matter and expected outcomes, her open communication and timely responses to my questions and the matter itself, and her steadfastness in dealing with the opposing counsel until a final agreement was reached.
Rachel and her staff went over and above the call of duty to help me achieve fiscal resolution to my legal issue. She wasn’t always available to talk but was always responsive via text and email when in court out of the office and even on vacation. I feel she earned her percentage cut.
Couldn’t be happier with the representation I received from Jamie Bailey on my civil litigation case. She worked tirelessly to resolve the case and in the end negotiated a fair settlement on my behalf. I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thanks for everything Friedman law firm.

The Friedmann Firm (specifically Pete Friedmann) represented me through what seemed like a never ending employment discrimination suit. The suit was filed just before Covid shut everything down in 2020. Add to that a former employer who refused to admit fault. In spite of all of that, Pete stood resolute in his representation of me and working for the best outcome for me. We ended up settling prior to trial and I was more than satisfied with the results. Pete was always available to answer questions and reassure me throughout this process. I highly recommend The Friedmann Firm!
Pete Friedmann and his firm are fantastic. He represented me for more than a year going through a suit with a previous employer. He walked me through every step of the process and was always quick to respond to any questions I had. My settlement came in and we parted ways with both sides being pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend the Friedmann firm and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again in the future if the need arose. Thank you, Pete!
Rachel and the Friedmann Firm have been amazing to work with. Rachel was very helpful, listened to our concerns and took our case. She communicated well throughout and really worked for us. We were very well represented!
I loved working with The Friedmann Firm. Rachel and Jamie are exceptional lawyers and were diligent in reviewing my case and letting me know of my options. Jamie was extremely thorough and handled even the smallest details of my case with ease. The entire process was seamless and they were always quick to respond to emails and calls. I would definitely recommend working with The Friedmann Firm.
I would recommend Rachel Sabo Friedmann and the Friedmann firm for severance negotiations. Rachel was always available and responsive and made an effort to ensure I was updated on every step of the process. Her diligent efforts produced a prompt resolution and we are very happy with the results!
