Gender or sex discrimination, a form of employment discrimination, takes place whenever people of a certain gender are treated differently on the basis of that gender. Generally, sex discrimination has been directed at women, but men can also be victims of sex discrimination. Sex discrimination is illegal in any circumstance in which it affects the terms and conditions of employment.
A variety of state and federal laws have established that men and women must be treated equally in the workplace; in other words, men and women must be subject to the same practices in employment, compensation, promotion, demotion, placement, job training, working conditions, benefits, layoffs, privileges, and job assignment.
Although sex discrimination and gender discrimination often refer to the same thing, it is important to note that sex refers to physiological features, while gender refers to socio-cultural traits and self-identification. Both sex discrimination and gender discrimination are illegal in the United States.
Men and women must receive equal pay for equal work according to the EEOC’s Equal Pay Act of 1963. Men and women must receive equal pay based on the work that they do, rather than the job title that they hold. If you believe that you have been discriminated against because of your gender, and your pay is lower than that of your peers, then you may have a legitimate sex discrimination claim.
Other examples of sex discrimination include the ‘glass ceiling,’ which is a supposed barrier that prevents people of a certain gender from advancing to the top rungs of the corporate hierarchy. In the United States, it is claimed that women encounter the ‘glass ceiling’ in Fortune 500 companies in which the vast majority of top executives are men.
