Despite significant gains made by women and minorities across corporate America, a stubborn glass ceiling prevents them from advancing to the most powerful and highest paying positions in the workplace. For example, a recent study found that the number of female CEOs among Fortune 500 companies dwindled to just 5.4%.
And the recent sex harassment scandals underscore how the dearth of women in the most senior/powerful positions in many of these companies (the glass ceiling) helps perpetuate a workplace culture in which sexual harassment is allowed to fester.
To help navigate the legal issues surrounding glass ceiling/promotion discrimination claims, the employment discrimination attorneys at Zuckerman Law issued Shattering the Glass Ceiling: Tips for Combatting Promotion Discrimination.
Cracking the glass ceiling requires that you know your rights and options
If you have been denied a promotion based on your gender, race, sexual orientation, or other protected characteristic, it is critical to know your rights and formulate an effective strategy to combat glass ceiling discrimination.
The free guide provides “plain English” answers to common questions about promotion discrimination, including:
- How do I prove I suffered glass ceiling discrimination?
- What can I recover?
- What should I do if I’m retaliated against?
- What deadlines apply to filing a discrimination case?
Zuckerman Law has also issued a Sexual Harassment Survival Guide for Employees.
