  • Gender and breaks in Ohio

    My daughter works at a local resturant and recently they were advised that all female servers must take a break after working 6 hours and all males after working 8 hours.
    Isn't that gender discrimination and what can be done if it is?

    Employers are prohibited from establishing policies with a disparate impact on one sex at the expense of another, and based on the facts you've presented above, it sounds like you are dealing with a gender discrimination issue.

    For further information, contact your local US Department of Labor office in Cincinnatti at (513) 684-6840 or in Cleveland at (216) 357-5455.

    You can also contact an employment law attorney for a free consultation.
