Sex (Gender) and Pregnancy Discrimination

If a woman or man is treated less favorably in the workplace because of his or her sex, or sexual preference, there may be a valid discrimination claim. For example:

  • A manager or supervisor berates an employee or group of employees based on gender or sexual preference
  • Women or men are singled out and subjected to performance improvement plans (PIPs) or subjected to unreasonable PIPs
  • A woman is treated fairly until she becomes pregnant, then she is harassed, fired or demoted

Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Unfortunately, sexual harassment in the workplace is still a very real occurrence. If a man pressures a woman (or vice versa) to provide sexual favors in exchange for a promotion, increased pay or other benefit, it is considered sexual harassment.

Inappropriate jokes, emails, comments, innuendo, or physical contact can create a hostile work environment that should not be tolerated. Additionally, an employee cannot be fired, demoted, or harassed for ending a consensual relationship with another employee or superior.
