Module 3: Module Notes: Sexual Harassment, Age, and Gender Discrimination 
As we continue our exploration of employment law, we shall analyze the issues of gender and age discrimination, which affect many people seeking jobs, as well as those being fired before retirement without cause. We shall also explore the very difficult issue of sexual harassment in the workplace and how it shapes the development of corporate policies.
In many ways, it is legal to discriminate based on age; children under a certain age cannot hold jobs, drink alcohol, drive cars, join the military, or vote. We do not feel they have the capacity to make adult decisions until they are either 18 or 21 years of age. We may also take away the ability to work or drive based on capacity when a person gets older. We understand this and agree that, if safety is an issue, then we can discriminate in this way. So, when does it cross the line? When is discriminating based on age illegal?
We shall also explore the very difficult topics of gender discrimination and sexual harassment. Even in this country, which has laws to protect people from gender discrimination in hiring, it still happens, and women are often paid less than their male counterparts doing the exact same job. Worse yet is the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace. We are all human, and we all have human desires, but when these desires are played out in the workplace, it can cause a great many difficulties for both employees and employers.
This module will further discuss the issue of discrimination in the workplace and provide an overview of gender and age discrimination, as well as the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace. The discussion will provide a deeper analysis of these issues.
