Although it seems like a thing of the past, sex discrimination continues
to occur in the workplace. Many different actions may constitute sex discrimination
in the workplace, and Title VII prohibits discrimination “because
of” an employee’s sex. This means that your employer may not
take an adverse action against you because of your sex. In other words,
your sex cannot play a role in any aspect of your employment, including
hiring, transfers, promotions, pay, disciplinary action, suspensions,
and discharges. In addition to Title VII, a related law, the Equal Pay
Act, requires that men and women be given equal pay for equal work.
If you have questions about sex discrimination, or believe that you have
been subjected to sex discrimination at work, it is important to consult
with an experienced
Atlanta discrimination lawyer to answer your employment law questions and determine your next steps.
