Philadelphia Employment Lawyers: Part Time Work May Create Employer Bias

April 6th, 2016

A recent study conducted by the University of Texas at Austin, indicates that sexism could negatively affect men who are seeking full time employment after working part time. Researchers created hypothetical resumes which were identical, except for the sex of the applicant and the tenure of their most recent employment. The resumes were submitted in response to employment ads in five U.S. cities.

Researchers found that male applicants whose last job was a part time position received less than half the number of callbacks as women whose last job was part time, despite the fact that other than their sex, their resumes were identical. The author of the study, David Pedulla, speculates that the sexist viewpoints of employers are to blame for the discrepancy. According to Pedulla, sexist employers have lower expectations for women and view part time employment as typical for female professionals; however, their expectations are higher for men, and part time employment demonstrates a lower commitment level in men.
