According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, gender discrimination involves treating someone unfavorably based on a person’s gender.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 forbids gender discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment—including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, benefits, and any other term or condition of employment. The law also covers transgender status and sexual orientation. But despite Title VII, 30% of women still report gender discrimination tied to pay. If you or someone you know was a victim of such unjust treatment, please remember that we here at The Tran Firm are dedicated to fighting against gender bias in the workplace and can assist you in finding justice.
