What Is Sex Discrimination?

It is beneficial to be aware of the types of behaviors that could be forms of sex discrimination. This includes any unfavorable treatment on the basis of someone's gender or using a person's gender as a factor in employment decisions such as:

  • Hiring or terminating employees
  • Promotions or job assignments
  • Health care benefits or pay scale
