What Is Sex Discrimination?
The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment based on an individual’s gender or gender identity, including transgender status, or because of sexual orientation.
It is illegal to harass a person because of that person’s sex. This can include sexual harassment, or:
- Unwelcome sexual advances
- Requests for sexual favors
- Verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature
Sex Harassment is not exclusively sexual. It can include offensive remarks about women in general, and both victim and harasser can be either a woman or a man. Both can be the same sex, or opposite sexes.
Offhand comments or isolated incidents that are not very serious are not prohibited by law, however, harassment that is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or that results in an adverse employment decision (such as the victim being fired or demoted) is.
The harasser can be:
- Another employee or coworker
- A direct supervisor or supervisor from another area
- A client or customer of the employer
