Gender Discrimination In Texas
Gender and sex discrimination is often experienced by women as well as gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals when they enter the workforce. Despite state and federal laws, which mandate that employers provide equal access and protections to all their employees, gender discrimination is still evident in workplaces in Texas.

Types Of Gender Discrimination
In Texas, employers follow the at-will employment doctrine, meaning that an employer can discipline or terminate an employee for practically any reason. However, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the Texas Labor Code prohibit an employer from discriminating against an employee due to their gender or sex.
The common ways employers may commit gender discrimination include:
- They pay one gender more than another, despite those in the latter group being equally qualified to perform the same tasks.
- They promote gender-based stereotypes about how a particular gender should act, behave or dress.
- They hire, promote, suspend and review employees based on their genders.
