Gender Discrimination in the Workplace
As an employee, an individual expects to be rewarded and disciplined based on his or her work performance alone. When gender affects any aspect of workers’ employment status or the opportunities they are provided with, they are being unjustly judged by an arbitrary characteristic rather than their work performance. The varied treatment of any particular individual based upon his or her gender is considered discrimination and is illegal in the workplace.
The Austin-based legal team at the The Melton Law Firm is committed to preserving the rights of workers and will aggressively pursue financial restitution from those who abuse those rights.
Common Forms of Gender Discrimination in the Workplace
Gender should have nothing to do with an individual’s treatment at work. Sadly, the following forms of gender discrimination do commonly occur in the workplace:
- Derogatory remarks about another person’s gender
- Persistence and patterned preference of one gender over another
- Inappropriate or offensive behavior toward individuals of a particular gender
Gender discrimination is unacceptable in any context, but it is especially troubling when it affects an individual’s ability to earn a living.
