Sex or Gender Discrimination

Sex/Gender discrimination is strictly prohibited under the FEHA. “Sex” includes both the biological differences between men and women and a person’s gender related appearance irrespective of assigned sex at birth. Adverse employment actions based on gender or stereotypes associated with a particular gender are illegal.

An employer must:

  • Allow employees to appear or dress consistently with the employee’s gender identify or gender expression.
  • Allow employees to use facilities, such as restrooms, which correspond with their gender identity or gender expression.
  • Not discriminate on the basis of gender identity or expression when providing fringe benefits, such as medical insurance.
  • Identify employees by their preferred gender pronoun or name, except is contexts relating to government issued identification.
  • (Discrimination based on motherhood can constitute illegal gender discrimination. Sex-based discrimination in rates of pay to employees is also specifically prohibited by the Equal Pay Act of 1963)
