  • Hiring, firing, or disciplining an employee based on that employee’s gender.
  • Disparate pay, compensation, or benefits based on gender.
  • Restricting advancement opportunities to members of one sex.
  • Harassment, abuse, or molestation because of one’s gender.
  • Requesting that an employee perform sexual acts for advancement or promotion opportunities.
  • Requiring employees to conform to gender stereotypes.
