Gender Discrimination - Wrongful Termination

Gender Discrimination in the Workplace

Gender discrimination in the workplace happens when an employee is treated differently because of his or her gender. Whenever gender discrimination in the workplace affects the terms and conditions of employment, it is against the law.

Two kinds of gender discrimination are disparate treatment & disparate impact.

Disparate Treatment Gender Discrimination
Disparate treatment is direct discrimination. To put it simply, it is treating an employee in a different manner because of their gender.

Disparate Impact Gender Discrimination
Disparate Impact Gender Discrimination is complex.  Disparate Impact happens when a company policy excludes certain people from jobs or promotions. Although the company policy may not have been designed to exclude, that becomes the unfair result. If  a job policy is not sufficiently job-related and therefore excludes some genders there could be gender discrimination in the workplace.

Stereotyping Gender Discrimination

In addition to these other forms of gender discrimination in the workplace, it is not legal to make any employment decisions based on gender stereotypes.  Employers that practice stereotyping gender discrimination in the workplace have violated the Federal Title VII anti discrimination law.

Gender Roles Gender Discrimination

Employers sometimes expect women to perform certain duties, like caring for children. If an employer does not hire a woman with small children, but does hire a man with small children than that is also gender discrimination in the workplace. The employer may not think that a woman with pre-school age children should work out of the home. While an employer is entitled to his or her beliefs, it should not affect employment decisions. If an employer is influenced by his or her beliefs in hiring decisions, that is against gender discrimination laws.
