Ruby Tuesday Sued by Employees for Discriminating Against Male Employees


Sexual discrimination is a two way street. There are lots of men that assume that they cannot be discriminated against based on their sex. However, Ruby Tuesday explicitly discriminated against male employees by making a lucrative employment opportunity available only to their female employees. The equal opportunity rights law from the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects both men and women alike. The employee rights attorneys in the lawsuit have filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of the employees that covers a nine state region.

It is pretty uncommon to see such an explicit civil rights violation. Most companies are better at concealing their discriminatory practices based on sex. New York employee civil rights attorneys usually have to work harder in discovery to win these cases for their clients. That does not mean that the cases are any less winnable, nor that the damages should be any less. It just means that finding the evidence necessary to win the case is going to be more difficult to uncover.

In cases like these, it is easy for the plaintiffs’ employee civil rights attorneys to recover damages for their clients. Ruby Tuesday not only made it clear that they only wanted female employees, they also only hire female employees for the seven positions available. More difficult cases require an experienced NYC employee rights attorney that can uncover facts that infer discrimination. Uncovering evidence of more subtle sex-based discrimination necessitates a skillful attorney.

Employees that notice practices that implicitly discriminate against them based on their sex should consult with an experienced NYC employee rights attorney to discuss their best course of action as a victim of discrimination. More often than not, the discrimination is not merely a coincidence. If you have been held back financially based on your sex, then you have the right to take legal action.
