Lastly, take risk as another factor. Majority of the workers in nearly all the most dangerous occupations, such as iron workers and loggers, are male, and 92 percent of work-related deaths in 2012 were to men. Males are also more likely to pursue occupations where compensation is risky from year to year, such as finance and law. Research shows that average pay in such jobs is higher to compensate for the risk. Therefore, due to the fact that women and men do different type of jobs and work different hours, the gap in wage is not related to gender discrimination and feminism is again proven to be irrelevant
(EEOC, 1964a) The argument is that Anna’s claim against her employers is valid on the basis of gender discrimination (EEOC, 1964b). Anna’s supervisor Michael would never have taken the actions that he did with Anna had she been a man. Once those actions were demonstrated to have an adverse reaction on both the work environment and employment, no remediation actions were taken
The statistics vary, but the average female worker is said to earn $0.77 cents for every dollar a man earns doing the same job. Likewise, Yale University conducted a study where they gave identical job resumes to potential employers labeling one with the name John and the other Jennifer, and John was offered, on average, $4,000 more in annual income. Both “John” and “Jennifer” had the same qualifications and the same amount of education, though for some unknown reason, the male candidate was viewed as more valuable. This kind of gender discrimination displays how women have an unfair disadvantage in the American workplace.
According to the court and their findings, gender discrimination did not really exist. They felt that it did not exist because the package was less than all-inclusive for women overall. It was discovered also by the Supreme Court that no evidence was found excluding disability benefits for pregnancy that led to the female employees having a plan of lesser value when compared to male employees of the employer. Justice Brennan argued that the disability plan did have a conflict with the purposes of the Title VIII and the court should adhere to a guideline that is established by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. He felt as if the EEO should offer more protection against sex discrimination than the Title VII did all together.
In the Oubre v. Entergy Operations, Inc. Case, Dolores Oubre the plaintiff was a scheduler at power plant in Killona, Louisiana, which is run by Entergy Operations, Inc. (the defendant). In 1994, Oubre’s employer gave her two options: she can either improve her job performance or accept a severance pay. While accepting the severance package, Oubre signed a document that released her employer Entergy of all claims. Although the employer Entergy Operations was released of all claims, it failed to meet specific standards or requirements for a release under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), as decided or set forth in the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA). In procuring the release, Entergy failed to comply in at least three respects with the requirements for a release under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, as set forth in the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act: It did not (1) give Oubre enough time to consider her options, (2) give her seven days to change her mind, or (3) make specific reference to ADEA claims (Twomey, 2013, p. 548).

Women were more likely than men to feel that they have been discriminated against at work, 5.7 per cent of women report, compared to 4.1 per cent of men, these results are consistent with analyses of working conditions and labour market experiences which show that women are disadvantaged when compared to men in relation to pay (Russell, Quinn, & King-O’Riain,
After this had expired after two years, Ms. Fraser failed to advise UBS of any change in her medical prognosis and was terminated because of frustration. Because she had not returned to work, her employment contract became impossible to perform. As a result, the Court ruled in favour of UBS and said that the contract had become frustrated and UBS was under no obligation to provide notice or pay in lieu of notice (Fitzgibbon,
