Learning About Tax Law

Hello, my name is Nelson Stewart. Welcome to my website about tax law. The proper completion of tax documents, and their prompt return to the IRS, keeps people from landing themselves in court against tax evasion charges. Whether miscalculations are deliberate or accidental, the IRS tends to catch people who are not paying their fair share of taxes. Taw laws are convoluted and difficult for the average person to understand. I created this site to help people better understand tax laws and improve their chances of abiding by those regulations. Please feel free to visit my site on a regular basis to learn more about tax law.

Situations That Constitute Gender Discrimination

Unfortunately, gender discrimination still exists.

Situations That Constitute Gender Discrimination

Unfortunately, gender discrimination still exists. Don't think it is only women that have this problem, or that it is limited to the workplace. While not every situation is considered discrimination by the law, there are times when you should contact a lawyer to settle a problem. Here are some times when you have the right to be treated equally regardless of your gender.

Fair Treatment at Work

If you are doing the same job as someone of the opposite gender, you deserve to be paid the same wage. You should also be promoted equally based on your work performance and length of employment. You should be given the same opportunities to excel within the company and be able to apply for the same jobs regardless of your gender. No supervisor should ever demand any type of relationship with you in order for you to keep your job or get a promotion. Finally, your bosses and co-workers should not assume you will take care of a specific task merely because of your gender.

Fair Treatment at School

Faculty are not allowed to grade your papers according to your gender. They cannot exclude you from intramural sports just because you need to change into a uniform in a different locker room. In addition, if there is a special job or position open to students, all genders must be considered and the position must be awarded based on merit. Finally, you must not be forced into an unwanted relationship, whether it is physical or not, to receive a grade or position within the class.

Fair Treatment in Social Settings

You must be allowed to apply for and campaign for any position you are qualified to perform for the group. It is not legal to keep you from attending meetings or outings because of your gender. In addition, businesses may not treat you any differently than other customers or patrons because of your sex.

How you handle gender discrimination is entirely up to you. However, you should never be made to feel you are less of a person in any way. While you may be able to get over a salesperson being a bit condescending or spiteful to you, it is important that you notify a boss or supervisor in the establishment of the issue at the very least. When any situation (workplace, school, or social setting)  causes you any type of damage, be it emotional, physical, or financial, it is time to exercise your rights under gender discrimination law.
