What is Gender or Sex Discrimination in the Workplace?
Gender or sex discrimination in the workplace refers to unjust or prejudicial treatment of an individual based on their gender or sex. It is a form of employment discrimination where employees or job applicants are treated differently, unfairly, or less favorably due to their gender or sex, rather than their qualifications or abilities.
This type of discrimination can manifest in various ways, including:
- Hiring: An employer might decide not to hire an applicant solely because of their gender or sex, even if they are qualified for the position.
- Promotions: Denying promotions or career advancement opportunities based on gender or sex rather than merit.
- Compensation: Paying employees differently based on their gender or sex for substantially similar work.
- Work Assignments: Assigning tasks or projects in a biased manner, favoring one gender over the other.
- Harassment: Subjecting employees to unwanted advances, comments, or hostile behaviors based on their gender or sex, leading to a hostile work environment.
- Retaliation: Taking adverse actions against an employee for complaining about gender or sex discrimination or participating in an investigation related to such discrimination.
Gender or sex discrimination violates both federal and state employment laws in California, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). These laws protect employees from discrimination based on their gender or sex and ensure equal opportunities and fair treatment in the workplace.
