Gender

Relevant EU Directives:

Directive 2004/113/EC and Directive 2006/54/EC.

The prohibition of discrimination based on gender includes direct and indirect discrimination in the field of employment and occupation, and in the access to and supply of goods and services. It also covers harassment and sexual harassment.

Example:

Examples can include an employer paying a female employee less than her male colleague for performing the same job or the dismissal of a woman after she announces her pregnancy.
