The study investigated the problem of inequality in job-related benefits between male and female persons in organizations. Three hundred (300) government staff from various organizations in Anambra State, 150 male and 150 female workers with mean=34.79 years and SD = 33.58, served as participants. A 10–item questionnaire was developed to measure job-related benefits, four hypotheses were tested. Hypothesis 1 which stated that women get more leave days than men in organisations was confirmed t (299) = 4.75, p<.001. Hypothesis 2 stated that men get more letters of commendations from the management than women in organizations was also confirmed t (299) = 13.29, p< 001. The result t (299) = 9.24, P < .001 supported. Hypothesis 3 which stated that men get faster promotion than women of equivalent qualification and experience in organizations, hypothesis 4 which stated that men get more on the job training than women of equivalent qualification and experience in organizations t (299) = 9.35, p<001, was not supported rather the opposite was the case that women get more on–the-job training than men in organizations. The findings showed that there are significant discrimination, on the job training based on gender. This result agrees with the assumption of Uwe (1999), that women are being denied opportunities to display their talents.
