Title VII and the Florida Civil Rights Act prohibit gender discrimination, also referred to as sex discrimination, in employment.
Gender (sex) discrimination is treating an employee or employees differently because of their gender. Whenever this discrimination affects the "terms or conditions of employment", it is illegal. "Terms or conditions of employment" means just about anything relating to someone's job: their position, pay, title, hours, vacations, etc. Whether or not a person is hired is also considered a term or condition of employment.
There are two types of gender (sex) discrimination:
- Disparate Treatment Discrimination is straight forward form of discrimination. Simply put, it is treating a person differently because of his or her sex.
- Disparate Impact Discrimination is more complicated for of discrimination. "Disparate impact" is where some type of company policy excluded certain individuals from the job or from promotions. The policy may not have been designed to exclude them based upon their gender (sex); that was just the unfortunate result of how the policy was company policy was written.
