Gender discrimination in the workplace on the rise, says Greek Ombudsman

The number of workplace gender discrimination charges in Greece went up by 25 percent, according to a Citizens’ Advocate (Ombudsman) report released on Monday.

“The crisis and its consequences clearly reflect on the quality of jobs and occupations available to women,” said the survey, which put the number of reported discrimination cases at 327.

Meanwhile, a steep decline in the number of unequal access allegations is directly connected to the high unemployment rate among women, the report said.
