Combating Gender Discrimination At Work: Wage Discrepancies And Unjust Hiring Practices
Discrimination in the workplace is more prevalent than many people realize, particularly discrimination related to an employee’s gender. Despite equal opportunity employment laws and explicit details in employment handbooks that declare discriminatory behavior illegal, discrimination still takes place in the form of wage discrepancies between male and female workers and the types of positions that men and women hold.
These discrepancies are rarely the result of merit-based pay rates and promotions, as many employers suggest. There is often an underlying cause — one founded in biases and prejudices against certain individuals in the workplace.

Taking Action When You Have Been Mistreated
Too many times, we hear about people who have experienced gender discrimination at work through undervalued pay rates, disadvantages in being hired and being overlooked for well-deserved promotions.
When we investigate further, we often find prevalent and pervasive employment practices on the part of the employer that involve skewing promotions or hiring away from women who have young children at home (even though many men with similarly aged children are readily hired by the business), or instances of sexual harassment that go unchecked by managers and human resources departments.
