You have decided to start your own business and you are concerned about all the laws governing businesses with respect to gender and sex and race discrimination, but you're not really sure what this entails. Hello, I'm Robert Todd and I'm here to answer the question and provide you with examples of gender, sex and race discrimination. First of all, I think race discrimination is probably pretty obvious. When you unfairly make an employment decision based on an individual's race and not on any other characteristics. An example would be two equally qualified individuals, one being of one race and one of another race and simply hiring over and over and over the individual of a particular race and not hiring anyone of the other race. Sexual and gender discrimination is also obvious but sometimes a little more subtle. For example, when an employer assumes that men are tougher and so doesn't offer jobs that both men and women can do but has the idea that men are tougher so the men get the toughest jobs and women get the least tough jobs, or alternatively, women are more sensitive than men, and so the women get all of the so-called sensitive jobs and the men get the - I guess - insensitive jobs. I'm Robert Todd and thank you for watching.
