The Presence of Gender Discrimination in the Workplace

Gender discrimination is a significant problem for many workers in Texas. From failure to hire because of gender to denial of certain benefits or promotion opportunities on the basis of sex, gender discrimination can take many forms. Often, employees complain of work environments that are particularly hostile for their specific gender. This might be something as seemingly nonchalant as sexist comments or jokes.

Sexual harassment is a common type of gender discrimination. This specific type of discrimination has its own particular set of laws and procedures.

Common forms of sexual harassment in the workplace include:

  • Unwelcome sexual advances
  • Unwanted physical contact
  • Sexual-related verbal abuse
  • Unwanted communication that is sexual
  • Employment offers made in exchange for sexual favors

My talented legal team has helped employees overcome the challenges of gender discrimination in relation to:

  • Hiring
  • Promotions
  • Disciplinary actions
  • Suspensions
  • Terminations

Protections Against Gender Discrimination

There are many state and federal laws in place to protect employees from gender discrimination in the workplace.

Some of the laws that protect workers from gender discrimination include:

  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964 – Under this Act, it is unlawful for employers to discriminate against their workers on the basis of gender in relation to the terms of their employment. Employers must provide equal pay to female and male workers who perform the same job duties. If a job has a condition where gender is a “bona fide occupational qualification,” the employer is permitted to exercise discrimination based solely on gender. According to Title VII, workers must submit a complaint within 300 days of the most recent act of gender discrimination.
  • The Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 – This Act enables employees to challenge their employers on long-term pay deficiencies based on gender discrimination by filing an equal-pay lawsuit.
  • The Equal Pay Act of 1963 – The Equal Pay Act explicitly prohibits employers from unequal compensation and treatment of women. Under the law, it is illegal for specific employers to compensate workers of one gender less than workers of a different gender when performing jobs that require similar skill, responsibility, and effort.
