Both males and females are protected from sex discrimination in employment. Employers cannot treat you differently based on your gender even if it is to make customers happy or to “protect” you.
Examples of sex discrimination may include:
- You receive lower pay or benefits than coworkers of the opposite sex even though you perform a job requiring similar skill, effort, and responsibilities
- You are held to higher standards than employees of the opposite sex
- Your employer prefers members of one gender for particular jobs
