What is a glass ceiling claim?

A glass ceiling claim has nothing to do with the actual ceiling in your office. Instead, this has everything to do with protecting your rights as an employee and ensuring that you are on the right path to bigger and better things in your professional life.

Despite the fact that gender gaps in employment have narrowed over the past 30 years, women continue to run into issues when it comes to moving up in a company. Known as a glass ceiling, this is an invisible barrier that stops you from rising to the level that you deserve.

Glass ceiling concerns often come into play in the following industries: banking, financing, insurance, medicine, legal, education, marketing and sales, police and fire, publishing, television and radio, technical research, and scientific.

Of course, you can have a glass ceiling claim regardless of which industry you work in.

Here is an example of a common problem: you were forced to mentor your replacement. For example, maybe you trained a younger male colleague for a year. Soon enough, this person was promoted and you were left in your current position.

If you believe you have a glass ceiling claim, if you are ready to stand up for yourself, contact our attorneys to learn more. We can help you better understand your rights and which steps to take. In some cases, you may be able to receive compensation, such as by negotiating a severance package, without filing a case in court.

Learn more about this concern by reading our "Glass Ceiling Claims" webpage. The information you gather will help you clear your mind.
