“I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks” – Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Though discrimination based on sex and gender has been illegal for decades, women in all parts of society continue to experience sexual harassment, sexual assault, unequal pay, and discrimination. Discrimination on the basis of sex can cause women to suffer physical pain, emotional distress, and prevent career advancement. The #MeToo movement helped expose the discrimination women still face, and reminded everyone that the fight for equality is far from over.
Paula Greisen and Scott Medlock have brought numerous cases on behalf of women who have suffered discrimination in the workplace, education, and in all walks of life. Our lawyers have represented women who experienced gender-based discrimination in state and federal courts, before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Colorado Civil Rights Division, and in settlement negotiations with employers. Most importantly, they understand that these cases are sensitive and difficult for survivors of discrimination, and bring compassion and patience to every survivor’s case.
Greisen Medlock represents women who were videotaped in the restroom and under their desks when an outdoor industry company hired a convicted sex offender to run the company’s HR and IT Departments. While this convicted sex offender was running the company’s HR department, he called the #MeToo movement a “Hollywood fad,” and was not disciplined.
When transgender women in Colorado prisons suffered rape and were denied health care, Greisen Medlock lawyers brought a class action lawsuit to protect them.
Greisen Medlock’s lawyers sued a fertility doctor who was using his own sperm to artificially inseminate his patients, while telling his patients the donor would be “anonymous” and without obtaining their consent.
Paula Greisen filed a civil rights complaint for a woman Denver Police Department commander who was effectively demoted when she complained about sexual harassment in the police department.
Paula Greisen represented a nursing student who was sexually harassed by her professor, and forced to leave her degree program when the school failed to protect her.
When a popular sushi restaurant discriminated against women employees, Paula Greisen fought for four women in a sexual harassment and gender discrimination claim.
