Workplace discrimination is based on the belief that some people are better at some types of work than others. This is not solely attributable to employers but can be present in members of the workforce as well. It can be based on race, gender, religion, ethnicity, physical or mental disability, age, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Differences in earnings or the work carried out which come from differences in qualifications or responsibilities are not due to workplace discrimination. Workplace discrimination can be intended and involve unfair treatment of the people in a particular group or be unintended, yet still create unfavourable impact for that group.

While it may be due to ignorance, prejudice and stupidity this does not excuse it and it should be corrected. If it is deliberate and planned discrimination against a particular group it can be the sign of a toxic workplace so best find a new job, you may be next.
“I see the feminists are claiming workplace discrimination in favour of men in the fields of medicine and dentistry.”
“Funny how they never claim it in the field of sewer maintenance.”
