Gender discrimination can take many forms. Sadly, women often hit the proverbial “glass ceiling,” which prevents them from taking a position of greater managerial responsibility within an organization. Women can also hit “glass walls” when they seek to make horizontal career transitions into occupations traditionally filled by men. Gender discrimination can also take place in other ways, such as sexual harassment or workplace retaliation. Men, as well as women, can suffer the effects of gender discrimination.
Examples of gender discrimination include:
- Failure to promote because of gender,
- Failure to offer certain positions,
- Failure to give raises, and
- Failure to give equal pay.
In addition to the above, sex and gender discrimination laws prohibit discrimination based on gender identity and gender expression. If you have been discriminated against for failing to act like a stereotypical woman or man or because you are transsexual or transgender persons, you may be entitled to a settlement for unlawful sex and gender discrimination for not being promoted due to gender.
