Abstract

Discrimination is an anti-social offence. It is related to any distinction, exclusion or
preference made up on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, political opinion,
national extraction or social origin, which has the effect of nullifying or impairing
equality of opportunity of treatment in employment or occupation (International
Labor Office, 1968). In Malaysia, there has always been a big question whether
women holding managerial positions are being discriminated. Although it is difficult
to assess the real extent of the discrimination, it is believed to exist. This paper
investigates whether this kind of discrimination occurs in workplace with a focus on
female executives in private sectors.
