Sex Discrimination Female and male employees are protected from sex discrimination in the workplace by federal and state laws. However, female employees have historically suffered sex discrimination in employment. Female employees may suffer differences in pay, promotion, expectations and performance perception. Sociological data suggests that even executive and professional female employees often have to deal with negative sex-based perceptions -- often from subordinate male employees.
For female and male employees, sex discrimination occurs in employment when individuals are treated differently because of sex. Sex discrimination may motivate hiring decisions, disciplinary decisions, or termination decisions, and attitudes about sex can influence perceptions of performance and conduct. But however sex discrimination may reveal itself in the workplace, it is unlawful.
Any employee suspecting that his or her sex has factored into an adverse employment decision should consider the possibility that the decision constitutes unlawful sex discrimination and should contact an employment lawyer.
