Signs Of Pregnancy Discrimination And Sex Discrimination

Signs of pregnancy discrimination include:

  • Being removed from consideration for a promotion for which you were well-qualified
  • Increased criticism of your work
  • Exclusion from meetings and events

Signs of sex discrimination and gender discrimination include:

  • Being passed over for promotions in favor of less-qualified candidates
  • Poor performance reviews based on your communication style
  • Exclusion from particular work projects or social gatherings

Also, if your place of employment is stuck in "role ruts" (specific jobs based on gender), there might be a problem.

The Law Prohibits Discrimination Based On Pregnancy Or Sex

State and federal laws protect you against sex discrimination. This applies to pregnancy, gender identity and sexual orientation, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which enforces discrimination laws.

The law also protects you from retaliation by your employer. The EEOC says it is "illegal to discriminate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit."
