We know that the #MeToo movement has put a spotlight on many of the things that happen in the workplace, but it has focused mainly on instances of sexual abuse and harassment. Yes, those are forms of workplace gender discrimination, and they should never happen. However, there are other ways that women face discrimination. Some of these include:
Unequal Pay – It may surprise you to learn that women in equal positions with the same responsibilities as their male counterparts still make only $0.80 on the dollar compared to their male coworker. This pay gap is even more prominent when it comes to women of color. Both state and federal law says that this is illegal and that employers must take steps to equalize pay within their organizations.
Promotions and Job Positions– There should be no “glass ceiling” that women have to look up at and watch their male coworkers soar with promotion opportunities. All too often, women are passed over for promotion. In many cases, women are hired for positions that have traditionally been so-called “women’s jobs” while not being offered jobs traditionally held by men.
Pregnancy Discrimination – State and federal law mandate that women receive 12 weeks of unpaid medical leave following the birth of a child. Unfortunately, many employers fail to find a way to provide this leave and terminate a woman instead or discriminate against them when they return from leave.
The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission regularly investigates and charges employers in the US for gender discrimination and brought over 24,000 charges during the latest reporting year. Your OC gender discrimination attorney will help move your case forward.
