8 Signs of Gender Discrimination


Under California law, it is unlawful for employers to discriminate against you based on your gender. Below is a non-exhaustive list of what courts have found as potential evidence of gender discrimination in the workplace. One factor alone is not necessarily determinative and depends on other evidence as well:


1. when an employer sponsored hunting and fishing trips attended by only male employees

2. when a supervisor said that he did not want to have to “deal with” another female employee

3. when a female employee was denied funds to travel to and attend a conference, while her similarly situated male coworkers were provided these funds

4. when an employer stated that female job candidates get “nervous” and “easily upset

5. when a female employee received a lower salary than her male coworkers even though they all had similar jobs and engaged in similar conduct

6. when a supervisor spoke disrespectfully to a female employee but did not demonstrate the same disrespect to male employees

7. when a supervisor took male employees to attend events with vendors but never took female employees to these events

8. when a supervisor audited a female employee for two errors but did not audit a male employee who made a more costly error
