Sex Discrimination

Gender discrimination (also called sex discrimination) is prohibited by state and federal law. Title VII and South Carolina statutes prohibit employers from discriminating against employees or treating employees in a discriminatory manner because of their gender. Discriminatory treatment includes unequal pay based on gender (often unequal pay for women) and disparate treatment for pregnancy (pregnancy discrimination ) or taking medical leave under FMLA. In addition, you cannot be fired or denied employment because of your gender.
