Sex discrimination laws are designed to ensure that workers are evaluated, promoted, disciplined, and managed based on their individual qualifications, not on preconceived stereotypes about their sex or gender. There are both federal and state employment regulations in place that protect workers against sex-based discrimination. Employees in the Inland Empire may have protections under the following sex discrimination prohibition laws:
Under both Title VII and FEHA, sex discrimination is defined broadly as unfavorable treatment on the basis of sex. In some cases, gender-based discrimination is open and obvious. It may even be explicit. Though, in many other cases, sex discrimination is subtle. These cases can be challenging as sex discrimination can take many different forms. Here are some of the most common examples of gender/sex discrimination in the workplace:
LGBTQ employees are protected against sex-based discrimination. Under federal law and state law, sexual orientation discrimination and gender identity discrimination are, by definition, forms of discrimination on the basis of sex. In the 2020 Supreme Court case of Bostock v. Clayton County, the nation’s highest court found that discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and/or gender identity is inextricable to sex. An employer who fires an individual merely for being gay or transgender defies the law. If you believe that you or your loved one was subject to sexual orientation discrimination in the workplace, contact an attorney for immediate help with scheduling an appointment for a free consultation for your potential case.
Women are disproportionately affected by sex/gender discrimination in the workplace. That said, men are also victims of sex discrimination—particularly in fields that are female-dominated. Federal and state sex discrimination laws are gender neutral. Men who are victims have the right to file a sex discrimination case. If you were treated less favorably than similarly qualified co-workers or job applicants because you are male, you may have been the victim of gender discrimination.
