Federal Law and California Employment Law clearly delineates that gender discrimination is against the law. Gender bias exists in several forms in companies. If you are being deprived of earning opportunities because your superior thinks the opposite gender can perform the jobs better, then that may amount to gender discrimination. Employees, both men and women, may also find themselves being discriminated against when they are denied leave to attend to a sick family member because the employer may deem that it is the opposite gender’s “role” to take care of family members.
Women are often circumvented when it comes to promotion to a bigger managerial role or even on a horizontal level. Gender discrimination also exhibits itself in the form of sexual harassment which is considered an unlawful act.
