Transcript of Gender Discrimination

Gender Discrimination What is it? Most cases of gender discrimination occur to women in the workplace. Barriers are set up by people in a company (or society in general)because people think that women are not as capable of doing a job than men. These barriers are often invisible because the company does not openly discriminate. Oftentimes these barriers make it so that hardworking women do not earn the position in the workplace that they deserve. Why does it occur? Many still believe that women are
less commited to their jobs
are unwilling to work long hours
are unwilling to relocate
lack quantitative skills
value their family lives more then their jobs.
In reality,shouldn't it be a positive thing that
women value their family lives more then thier jobs?
Since when did money & work come before loved ones?
Discrimination is a sociological term referring to the treatment taken toward or against a person of a certain group in consideration based solely on class or category. Discrimination is the actual behavior towards another group. It involves excluding or restricting members of one group from opportunities that are available to other groups In the United States, it is against the law to engage in gender discrimination in the workplace. Gender discrimination is defined as treating an employee or employees differently than other employees based on their gender (male or female — although the majority of gender discrimination cases in the U.S. have involved unfair treatment of female employees).

When gender discrimination affects an employee's "terms or conditions of employment," it is against the law. The phrase "terms or conditions of employment" covers just about anything that is related to someone's employment, including:

Pay or wages
Whether someone gets hired
Job title
Sick leave, maternity leave, parental leave
Work environment
Job termination
