Is it gender discrimination for Volvo to have a height requirement on workers? When working in the Volvo Factory workers have to be above 163 cm and bellow 195 cm to work on the cars that go through on a conveyer belt. The reason is they have established that anyone bellow the minimum height will have to stretch to do the work and taller people would have to bow down which would be bad for the workers body. Now a few women have reported them for discrimination against women and also sued them because 28% of women are bellow that height and so they would never be alowed to work there meanwhile only 1% of men would never be alowed to work there.
