Gender Discrimination at Work
Gender discrimination at work happens when an employee is treated differently because of their gender. It is difficult to provide for a family when you are not treated the same as the opposite sex. Many employers only consider candidates of a single gender for positions. Some people refer to this different or preferential treatment of the opposite sex as the “glass ceiling.” It makes it feel impossible to progress in your career.
Gender Discrimination Is Illegal
When an employee is a victim of gender discrimination it usually means they were paid less, or disregarded for some employment position or benefit, because of their sex. A good example of this is when women are considered mean or cold for acting a certain way in their employment, while men who engage the same way are considered assertive or ambitious.
Gender Discrimination Laws
Gender discrimination laws exist to level the playing field in the workforce and ensure that there is equal treatment, and equal pay for equal work. If you think that you have suffered mistreatment or substandard working conditions, pay, or opportunities because of your sex, give us a call.
Economic and emotional damages usually occur when these laws are violated. If you believe you may been the victim of discrimination it is important that you protect your case.
