Are you experiencing sex or gender discrimination at work?

 

Sex and Gender Discrimination

Sex and Gender discrimination in the workplace can affect both women and men. Historically, however, women are far more likely to be the victims of sex and gender discrimination. Sadly, the “glass ceiling” for women in the workforce is alive and well.

 

For instance, while women make up nearly 50% of the workforce, women still earn only 80.9% of what men earn . Even more staggering, women account for only 4.6% of CEO’s of Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies.  Such disparities between men and women in the workplace must change. And like other groups who face discrimination, change will only happen if women continue to stand up and make their employers accountable for sex and gender discrimination.

 

We will stand up with you

If you are being discriminated against at work because of your sex or gender, the Khadder Law Firm will stand up with you to hold your employer accountable.

 

Sex and gender discrimination come in many forms

Like other types of workplace discrimination, sex and gender discrimination can take many forms. For instance, an employee may be subjected to harassment, name calling, or other inappropriate behavior because of his or her sex or gender.

 

Discrimination in the workplace can also occur when an employee or prospective employee, because of his or her sex or gender, is turned down for employment, unfairly disciplined (including receiving negative performance reviews), passed up for a raise or promotion, terminated or laid off, paid less than other employees, or is subjected to other acts that affect the terms and conditions of his or her employment.  In addition, sexual harassment is also considered a form of sex discrimination.  For more on sexual harassment, click here.

 

Pregnancy discrimination = Sex/Gender discrimination

Women can also be victims of sex discrimination because they are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant, or experiencing pregnancy related medical conditions.  Click here for more on pregnancy discrimination.

 

Gender identity and gender expression

Finally, sex and gender discrimination laws prohibit discrimination based on gender identity and gender expression. Thus, discrimination for failing to act like a stereotypical woman or man, and discrimination against transsexual and transgender persons, also constitute unlawful sex and gender discrimination.
