Gender Discrimination Law

Share |

24.    Gender discrimination is a sexual discrimination in which person’s sex becomes an unfair factor while receiving a job, promotion, or any other employment benefit. Gender Discrimination arises many different aspects as this discrimination grants as well as denies opportunities, privileges, or rewards to a person just on the basis of their sex. Discrimination in this context is considered as a form of prejudice and in certain explained circumstances is unlawful in many countries. It most often affects women who feel they have been unfairly discriminated against in favor of a man. But there have also been cases where males have claimed that reverse discrimination has occurred that is, the woman received unfairly favorable treatment at the expense of the man.
Examples of gender discrimination or sexual harassment that would fall under the scope of the act include:

  • An employee who alleges that his or her boss only promotes male employees and keeps females in entry-level positions.
  • A boss who makes it clear, either through his actions or words that he wants to have sexual relations with a female employee.
  • A boss who asks inappropriate and unnecessary questions about a female employees sex life.
  • A boss who touches his female employees in inappropriate ways without consent.
  • An employee who alleges that a boss or other person in power tells jokes or makes statements that are demeaning, insulting, or offensive to women.
  • Compensation, and various types of harassment.

In many countries, laws forbid employers from discriminating on the basis of

  • Race
  • Color
  • Sex
  • Religion
  • National origin
  • Physical or mental disability
  • Age

There is also a growing body of law preventing or occasionally justifying employment discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Some jurisdictions within countries implement their own non-discrimination laws.For Expert consultation on Gender Discrimination Law you can, take advice from Gender Discrimination Lawyer or Gender Discrimination Attorney in your area.
