Abstract (Original Language): 
Algılanan cinsiyet ayrımcılığının sonuçlarını açıklamaya yönelik araştırmanın amacı; bireylerin cinsiyet ayrımcılığı kavramını belirlenmesine yardımcı olan değişkenler arasındaki ilişkiyi tespit edebilmektir. Bu değişkenler arasında; cinsiyet, cinsiyet kimliği, cinsiyet önyargısı ve cinsiyet ayrımcılığı bulunmaktadır. Ele alınan bu boyutların aynı zamanda bireyin “işten ayrılma niyeti” ile “örgüte bağlılık” ilişkilerinde ne ölçüde etkili olduğu tespit edilmeye çalışılmıştır. Bu amaca ulaşabilmek için, iki firmada “mavi ve beyaz yakalılara” konuyla ilgili anket çalışması yapılmıştır. Sonuçlar göstermiştir ki; her iki firmada oluşturulan hipotezler dikkate alındığında firmalarda “cinsiyet ayrımcılığı” yapılmaktadır ve kadın çalışanlar bu ayrımcılığı erkeklere göre daha çok algılamaktadırlar. Bunun dışında, çalışanlar arasında yaşanan cinsiyet ayrımcılığı çalışanların örgütsel olan bağlılığını” etkilediği gibi çalışanların işten ayrılma niyetini de pozitif yönde etkilemektedir.
