CIS LONDON advocate Tatiana Titova on gender discrimination in employment

The problem of gender discrimination has been on the agenda for a long time. It is still a matter of great interest to media and society owing to its importance. 

Russian news outlet Mel has recently published an article about employment discrimination which women face.

According to advocate Tatiana Titova, it is really difficult to prove gender discrimination in employment. “We need a more flexible approach to evidence”, Tatiana said. For example, witness evidence, conversation recording, polygraph examination, references to similar cases of the employer’s behaviour and psychological reports should be used to support claims.
