You can recover attorney's fees in a gender discrimination case

Hiring a good attorney can be expensive. In fact, the high cost of litigation can make you believe that your case isn't worth it. However, if you faced gender discrimination at work and you win your case, you may not need to pay attorney's fees.

The laws in New York were recently changed to allow for reasonable attorney's fees in employment discrimination cases where the discrimination was based on sex or gender. This means that if you win your claim, the defendant may be ordered to pay your attorney's fees at the end of your case.

Do you have a winning case?

Whether you have a strong sex discrimination case depends on many factors. It is important that you speak with an attorney who can fully evaluate your claim. Your attorney can help you weigh your options and advise you on whether you may be able to recover attorney's fees in your case.

Before speaking with an attorney, be sure to gather the evidence you need. Keep a record of instances where you felt that you were being discriminated against because you are a woman. Also, gather the contact information for any of your co-workers who have faced similar discrimination at work.

How much are attorney's fees?

Every attorney has different fees, and the cost will vary depending on the attorney's experience and skill in the courtroom. When you first speak with your attorney, he or she will explain their fees and what you can expect to pay. In order to be sure that you are getting a fair deal, try to speak with a number of different attorneys. Not only will that give you an idea of the fees you can expect, but it can also give you the opportunity to find an attorney who makes you feel comfortable and confident in the decisions you make.
