Gender discrimination at workplaces is fast becoming an area of legal concern in the country. California laws and federal laws direct that all employees irrespective of their gender should be given equal opportunities and rights in the organization. Yet many a times, women are discriminated against her colleagues only because of her gender.

Gender discrimination at workplace is present in many forms. A woman is unable to cross the “glass ceiling,” preventing her from taking up positions of greater managerial responsibility in the company. They may also be hit by the “glass walls” when they want to change their line of career and apply for a role in occupations which have been traditionally filled by men only. But let’s not forget, that like sexual harassment or assault, men and women, both can be victims of sex or gender discrimination.

Some of the common examples of Sex Discrimination in the workplaces:

Gender discrimination can be aggressive or indirect, below mentioned are some gender discrimination examples:

  • Not hiring or promoting someone because of their gender
  • Terminating someone from job because of gender
  • A female employee working hard since years for the organization is overlooked for position of manager, and a new male manager is hired from outside, despite both having similar qualifications and experience
  • Pay cuts for female employee who cannot log in overtime hours because of her family responsibilities. Whereas a male employee receives no pay cuts if he cannot work overtime because of personal reasons.
  • Female employees not being allowed to add their husbands to their health insurance provided by company, whereas male employees are allowed to add their wives to the insurance.
  • Creating hostile work environment for someone because of their gender

This federal law forbids employers from discriminating at workplace because of gender.

The Employment law forbids any form of discrimination based on gender.

Employers are forbidden from gender discrimination in the below mentioned areas:

  • Hiring or firing of an employee
  • Determining the Compensation for an employee
  • Deciding on transfers, promotions, layoffs etc
  • Advertising for a job mentioning a specific gender
  • Offering Fringe benefits
  • Determining the Pay structure, the leaves, retirement planning etc.
  • Selection for Training and internship programs
  • Any other conditions of employment which discriminated on the basis of an individual’s gender

Rights of a Victim of Gender Discrimination at Work

Both the Federal laws and state laws protect employees from any form of discrimination at workplace. The Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination at workplace based on sex or gender. This law is applicable to businesses having 15 employees or more.

If you have been a victim of gender discrimination at work, you should file a federal law claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

In many case, some states allow reciprocal options with the EEOC. Discrimination cases filed with the state also get filed with the EEOC, and vice versa. Therefore, the victim does not have to decide between state and federal laws for their claim. They can claim under both the laws.
