Typically, a gender discrimination expert witness has a background and expertise in employment law, social psychology, and/or economic damages as they relate to emotional distress, employment discrimination, or wrongful termination.
Gender discrimination is discrimination towards people based on their gender identity. Affirmative action is a set of laws and policies intended to end discrimination, and primarily focuses on education and employment. The US government Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing employment laws regarding discrimination against an applicant or employee due to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetic information.
A discrimination case requiring gender discrimination expert witness services often involves employment law matters, such as wrongful termination, hiring practices, or sexual harassment. Gender discrimination litigation support could include record review, research, expert opinion, depositions, and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, a law firm may request a consultant with prior expert testimony experience. In addition, a law firm may seek an affirmative action or sexual discrimination expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
