Workplace discrimination based on an employee’s or a job candidate’s gender is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Employers are prohibited from making decisions about hiring, promotions, raises, firing — or other employment matters when those decisions could be discriminatory because of the person’s gender, or because of the employer’s assumption about the worker’s gender.
Violating the law can be a costly mistake, leading to discrimination lawsuits and EEOC actions. This is a prospect most HR managers would obviously like to avoid. However, it can be difficult to know how to effectively limit the organization’s risk. Key elements of successful workplace anti-discrimination programs involve establishing expectations, training employees and supervisors, and providing supervisors with ongoing communication to help them recognize and avoid gender discrimination.
