Workplace discrimination still a major problem for women

For many New Jersey women in the workplace, the impact of gender discrimination and sexual harassment continues to be significant. The #MeToo movement has drawn attention to systematic discrimination against women in many industries and highlighted the fact that while progress has been made over the years, there are still significant problems with which to contend. Public calls for sex and gender equality have become prominent and well-accepted, yet women in the workplace continue to face barriers to advancement as well as unwanted sexual attention.

Women face greater burden of age discrimination at work

Women in New Jersey who focus on their careers later in life face challenges based on both gender and age stereotypes. Although many people harbor negatives associations about both older men and women, people judge older women more harshly on their physical appearance than older men according to a study by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

Law might not protect workers at small companies from harassment

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employers in New Jersey from discriminating against workers. Mistreatment inspired by someone's race, religion, national origin or sex is illegal for employers. However, federal law fails people who work for small companies or private households. Federal law only applies to employers with 15 or more employees.
