The practice of making employment decisions based on an individual’s sex is a form of employment discrimination known as gender discrimination. This type of discrimination often occurs in hiring decisions but can also occur in any other context where an individual is treated adversely due to his or her gender. Gender discrimination can also happen whenever leaders make decisions related to:
- Intracompany transfers
Gender discrimination can be subtle and hard to detect, such as in the case of differences in compensation. It can also be blatant, as with gender-based harassment, where slurs or derogatory remarks tied to a particular gender may permeate the workplace. In either case, a lawyer can assist you in evaluating the situation to determine whether legal action might be appropriate.
