We know that discrimination of all kinds permeates the workforce. One of the most prevalent kinds if discrimination is sex-based, or gender, discrimination. Over the last few years, the #MeToo movement has greatly helped to increase the public’s awareness of such discrimination and inspired many women to come forward about what they have experienced, particularly when it comes to sexual abuse and harassment.
However, gender discrimination shows up in other ways as well, including the following:
Does this really happen often in the workplace?
We know that the EEOC brought over 24,000 charges against employers for gender-based discrimination.
We also want to point out that it is illegal to discriminate against a woman because she is pregnant or has recently given birth. Both state and federal law offer protections in these situations. Employers must provide 12 weeks of unpaid leave for women after they give birth, and they cannot discriminate against them when they return to work.
