The Malaysian government has given a high commitment in their effort in achieving gender equality by providing education parity, equal employment opportunity and implementing anti-discriminatory tools and regulations. Despite these efforts, discrimination against women still persists in the workplace especially at the managerial level. This paper intends to discuss on the nature and forms of discrimination faced by women employees in Malaysia. It also discusses on how the government, employers, and the educational institutions can better enhance their roles in handling and possibly curbing work discrimination and finally, positively enhance their mental health level. © 2015 Canadian Center of Science and Education.
