What is "sex plus" discrimination?

"Sex plus" discrimination occurs where an employer classifies employees on the basis of sex plus another characteristic.

An example is where an employer takes an adverse job action on the assumption or stereotype that a woman, because she is a woman, will neglect her job responsibilities in favor of her presumed childcare responsibilities.
