Gender Discrimination

Posted by rossmanlaw on March 20th, 2018

Gender discrimination in employment occurs when an employer treats an employee or applicant unfavorably because of that person’s gender. Gender discrimination can also involve treating someone less favorably because of his or her connection with an organization or group that is generally associated with people of a certain gender.

Federal and state law forbid gender discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is the federal law applicable to gender discrimination claims. The Idaho Human Rights Act provides the basis for state law claims of gender discrimination in employment.

If you believe you have been a victim of gender discrimination in employment, you should act promptly to pursue any claim as the time for filing such claims is limited. Claims for gender discrimination under Title VII and/or under the Idaho Human Rights Act must first be filed with the Idaho Human Rights Commission before such claims can be pursued in Court.


If you’ve been the victim of a Fentanyl injury, you could be entitled to compensation. Contact a Fentanyl lawyer based in Ada County to learn more.Fentanyl is an extremely potent opioid medication that is considered a controlled drug and is prescribed for severe or chronic pain. It is delivered through the body gradually via the skin and is sold in a patch form that is worn for a specific period of time and replaced on a regular schedule.However, because Fentanyl is so powerful, if too much of the drug enters the body, an overdose or death can easily occur due to depression of the respiratory system. Fentanyl has been found to be linked with cases of overdose and sudden death due to a failure on the part of the manufacturer to provide sufficient warnings and instructions for proper dosing.If you have a loved one that has suffered from an overdose or sudden death after using any Fentanyl product, you need to obtain legal counsel from an experienced Idaho Fentanyl attorney as soon as possible. It is apparent that Fentanyl has the potential to impose severe harm on users. An adverse affect caused by this powerful narcotic can be a result of many different factors, including:

•             Failure of the prescribing doctor to verbally educate patient about the possibility for overdose and how to reduce the risk of adverse effects

•             Failure of the manufacturer to provide proper warning labels

•             Failure of the pharmacy to apply proper warning labels before dispensing medication to the patient
