There is probably no subject more sensitive to an employer today than "discrimination." The mood of the country and the "persuasive encouragement" of legislation and governmental enforcement, are making employers acutely aware of their obligation to eradicate any type of discrimination in the hiring, paying, promotion and termination of any of their employees. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, in its enforcement of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the Equal Employment Opportunity Act, acts as the vanguard on many of the attacks on discrimination due to race, creed, religion, or national origin.' However, there is another form of discrimination which is equally as pervasive, devastating, deep-rooted, and antithetic as any of the other forms: sex discrimination.
