Sex Discrimination

Discrimination in the Workplace Based on Sex 

Discrimination against any employee or applicant for employment because of his/her sex in regard to hiring, termination, promotion, compensation, job training, or any other term, condition, or privilege of employment, is a violation of Civil Rights Laws.  Employment decisions cannot be based on stereotypes and assumptions about abilities, traits, or the performance of individuals on the basis of sex.  Pregnancy discrimination is also a prohibited form of sex discrimination. 

The Equal Pay Act of 1963 requires that men and women be given same pay for equal work in the same establishment, where the work is substantially equal.
