Examples of Workplace Gender Discrimination

Gender discrimination can be overt, such as directly firing an employee simply because they are a woman. More often, however, discrimination comes in more subtle ways. Employers allow these environments, either because they want to perpetuate a specific "culture," or because they hope that workers get frustrated and quit on their own.

Gender discrimination includes the following and more:

  • Disqualifying or preferring workers for promotion based on sexual identity or orientation
  • Policies and procedures that benefit one gender over the other
  • Allowing sexual harassment in the hopes the targeted employee will voluntarily quit
  • Unequal expectations of conduct or dress based on gender
  • Preferential assignments or opportunities based on gender

When to Retain a Lawyer for Discrimination

Once you begin to suspect you are experience gender discrimination, you should consult with a lawyer. However, before bringing a claim of gender discrimination to court, it is best to explore your options for resolving the matter with your company. Even if you know litigation is the only option, demonstrating you gave your company the chance to resolve the issue will strengthen your eventual case.
