Instagram Live: Workplace Rights & Discrimination

Join WMN Legal Founder Sienna Babb and leading employment attorney Jennifer Pucher of
Pucher Law for an Instagram Live where they will discuss your questions about workplace
rights, the wage gap and discrimination.

Examples of some of the questions we might discuss:

  • What does the law say about Equal Pay?
  • Is it legal for my employer to pay me less than my male colleague even though we have the same title and do the same job? (or have the same responsibilities?)
  • What does the law consider to be discrimination?
  • I’ve noticed that my boss gives the better, more high-profile projects to the men on my team and gives the women inferior projects. Is this discrimination?
  • I am being denied projects and being left off of work trips because I am pregnant or a new mom and not able to travel as much. Is this discrimination?
  • What does the law consider to be harassment?
  • My boss is mean to me. Is this harassment?
  • What is the best way to work with Human Resources? I realize that they put the company first, so I am concerned that they won’t help or immediately bring the issue to my manager.
  • What if I don’t want to sue my company? Should I still work with an attorney and would my company know that I’ve hired a lawyer? How does this work?

About Sienna Babb, Founder @ WMN Legal
Prior to founding WMN Legal, Sienna spent her career in the corporate world working in male-dominated industries. As a business development executive, Sienna came in to work one day to find that management had hired a new head of business development. She was told her title would change and she would now make less money. Oh, and if she didn’t like these changes, she could leave…with nothing. She found herself asking “is this even legal”? After finding an amazing lawyer by pure luck after weeks of searching, phone calls and getting passed around, Sienna lawyered up and got through the worst career moment of her life. She decided to turn lemons into lemonade and started a company to give those in need of legal help a better, faster and more trusted way to find kick ass women attorneys. Sienna’s mission is let women arm themselves with the resources and knowledge needed to make change happen.

No Attorney-Client Privilege
No attorney-client privilege will be created from this Instagram Live so while we can’t give you legal advice, we will discuss common employment law questions we receive daily and dispel myths about the legal process that every employee should know.
