The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is clear – the law forbids discrimination in any aspect of employment when it comes to a person’s gender.
Unfortunately, even in our supposed modern age, we know that workplace gender discrimination is prevalent. The #MeToo movement has helped spotlight that we have so much work to do. Understanding what gender discrimination looks like is vital, and it includes treating someone differently when it comes to:
In many cases, gender discrimination looks just like sexual harassment, but this is not always the case. It often involved bias against female employees by treating male employees more favorable with concern to the aspects listed above. It can also involve treating males employees more favorable when it comes to disciplinary proceedings.
What about equal pay?
Women in the US still only make $0.80 on the dollar compared to their male counterparts. Both state and federal law mandate that men and women in the same workplace be given equal pay for equal work. California offers substantial protections to combat wage differences between men and women in the workplace.
Is it illegal to discriminate based on pregnancy?
Yes, it is. The federal Family and Medical Leave Act and the California Family Rights Act both mandate that a person receive 12 weeks of medical leave following the birth of a child. An employer cannot discriminate against new mothers in any way.
We know that gender-based charges brought by the EEOC during the latest reporting year topped 24,000 and that California regulators were just as busy investigating instances of sex-based discrimination.
