Abstract: In spite of the fact that women constitute more than 47% of America's paid workforce, they continue to be discriminated against on the basis of their gender by their employers. Lower pay and fewer promotions for women with similar qualifications and experience, as their male counterparts seem to be the norm rather than the exception. Women employees of world-famous companies like AT&T (American Telephone and Telegraph Company), Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Merrill Lynch have successfully filed gender discrimination lawsuits against their employers. With the increase in the number of such cases, the threat of gender discrimination lawsuits has become corporate America's worst nightmare. These lawsuits have damaged the employer-employee relationship and created an atmosphere of suspicion and distrust between them.
