Gender Discrimination

What is Gender Discrimination?
New Jersey and federal laws prohibit employers from discriminating on the basis of gender. Gender or sex discrimination occurs when an employer treats an employee unequally based on the fact that the employee is a woman or is a man. Throughout the entire employment process, the policies and practices in the workplace should be equal between both men and women, including matters involving: hiring, compensation, layoffs, promotions, training, working conditions, benefits, and more.

An employer cannot make employee decisions based on gender stereotypes and other assumptions about men and women. The New Jersey gender discrimination attorneys at O’Connor, Parsons, Lane & Noble understand how difficult the decision to bring a discrimination claim against your employer can be and will help you understand all of your options and decide what is best for you.

Some examples of gender or sex discrimination can include:

• Refusing to hire or give promotions to someone based on gender
• Giving benefits to wives of male employees but not to husbands of employees who are women
• Paying a male employee more than a female coworker for a substantially similar position
• Refusing to hire or promote an employee because of his or her family responsibilities
• Refusing to promote a woman because she is pregnant or intends to become pregnant
