This study was designed to analyze the pervasiveness of gender discrimination among employees in the banking sector. To determine the impact of gender discrimination on employees’ job satisfaction levels, a sample 160 male and female respondents was selected from the bank organizations. A structured and close-ended questionnaire was used as a data collection tool. Chi-square was applied on the data to test the hypothesis using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). The results revealed that there was a statistically significant relationship between different dimensions of gender discrimination and job satisfaction level. Gender discrimination in employment was negatively linked with job satisfaction. This implies that, with the increase in gender discrimination at any stage of the job, the job satisfaction level of employees is likely to decrease. It was also concluded that the discriminatory behavior of bosses decreases the job satisfaction level among employees. Therefore, the respondents urged a cooperative and democratic attitude of the boss at workplace. A special focus is needed to spotlight gender discrimination and harness best possible options on managerial level to end gender discrimination.
