This note analyzes the complexities employer-sponsored egg freezing poses to female employees. The author highlights that with the high-cost procedure and low success rates, this enticing procedure should not be everyone's choice. Given the legal, social, and individual implications for female employees, the author notes that such employer-sponsored egg freezing is an implicit form of gender discrimination as employers push the female employees to work harder selling the sponsorship as a "benefit" of delaying having a family.
