The good old boy network is alive and well at many Bay Area employers. Companies continue to treat women differently than men in workplace, paying them less, failing to promote them despite superior job performance, and creating workplaces that are hostile to women.

What Is Gender Discrimination Under the Law?
California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and Federal laws under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibit employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of their sex. Prohibited behavior includes:
- Treating female employees differently from male employees.
- Paying female employees less than male employees who do the same work.
- Failure to promote female employees despite superior job performance.
- Adopting employment policies that have a disparate impact on male and female employees.
- Discriminating against pregnant employees.
While some forms of gender discrimination are obvious, other forms may be more subtle, such as bias in assignment of work tasks or poor job reviews despite adequate performance. Gender discrimination may include a sexually hostile work environment that subjects women to dirty jokes and lewd language, sexually explicit e-mails, pornography and offensive touching.
