based on class or category, continues to persist in various areas of life (ILO,
2003) and perceptions of it allow individuals to act on the problem at hand
(Dipboye and Collela, 2005). There is two type discrimination which is direct
discrimination and indirect discrimination. Direct discrimination is when being
treated different with the others because of the certain reason and indirect
discrimination consists of rules or procedures that, while not explicitly
mentioning discriminatory attributes, intentionally or unintentionally could
generate discriminatory decisions (P. Priya 2012).
According to Revees and Badeen (2000),
gender discrimination is the systematic, unfavourable treatment of individuals
on the basis of their gender, which denies them rights, opportunities or
resources. Gender discrimination usually occurs to women where they are treated
differently simply because of their gender. This discrimination always occurs
towards women even though their performance in their work is higher than men

Compensation means all forms of financial
incentives given by employers to their employees in exchange for their
contribution in an organization. To increase employees’ performance, compensation
as the exchange for it which is output and the benefit that employee receive in
the form of pay, wages and also same rewards like monetary (Holt, 1993). According
to Emansa and Kerstena (2001) it is unreal to assume that introduction of “pay
for performance”, pay according to the performance shall change each employee
during one night into a high-performance and motivated individual. The
satisfaction of workers have the potential to increase the employee performance
and compensation is one of employee satisfaction as their rewards for their
contribution towards organization. According to Li and Hung (2010), there is
more commitment, satisfaction, and motivation for the employee and better overall
performance for the employee.
Employee performance is can be said as the
beat of organization which is their performance towards the company is

order to achieve an organization’s goals and expectations (Brewster, 2007).
More the developed employees, more they are satisfied with their job, hence
increasing the firm productivity and profitability. (Champathes, 2006). This
also can be said that when the employee perform well it can increase the
performance of the organization as well.
