Examples of Gender Discrimination

Gender discrimination can take many forms, including sexual harassment or mistreatment in the workplace, failure to hire or promote based on a person’s gender, or a company policy that is not discriminatory on its face but in practice causes employees to be discriminated against because of their gender.

Common examples of sex- and gender-based discrimination include:

  • Wrongful termination
  • Lower pay for similar work
  • Harassment
  • Denial of benefits or FMLA leave
  • Inequitable job assignments
  • Denial of break time for nursing mothers
  • Refusal of employment or promotion

While people of any gender can face discrimination, many cases affect women, pregnant workers, and transgender employees.
