Where the law does not distinguish, we must not in any way also distinguish. This applies clearly to employment practices. All employees are protected against employment discrimination and prohibited personal practices, as enacted under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It is stated under law that employers should prohibit discrimination among employees on the basis of race, sex, national origin and religion. Any retaliation by an employer to an employee for filing a discrimination charge or for submitting himself to investigation or litigation against the employer is also a violation of the Civil Rights Act.
Any aspect of employment, whether it would be hiring and firing, compensation, assignment, transfer/promotion, training, work benefits, or any other conditions of employment is forbidden from any form of discriminatory practices, that may include harassment, employment decisions basing on stereotypes and biased assumptions, or denying employment opportunities due to participation of an employee with a certain religion, or an affinity/association with a certain race, national origin or an individual with disease disability. An employer, therefore, should not impose any undue hardship to its employees and make reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals to work productively.
Some states also have enacted laws against employment discrimination based on sexual orientation, marital status or political affiliation. You may contact the nearest Equal Employment Opportunity Commission office (EEOC) for more information about anti-discrimination laws in your state.
