Federal Law Prohibits Employment Discrimination
Federal Law requires that there be no discrimination against any employee or applicant for employment because of the individual’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age (40 and over), or disability with respect to hiring, promotion, firing, compensation, or other terms, conditions or privileges of employment.
Federal Law also requires that reasonable accommodations be provided to qualified individuals with disabilities who are employees or applicants, except when such accommodation would cause an undue hardship. An accommodation could be any change in the work environment or the way things are customarily done that enables an individual with a disability to enjoy equal employment opportunities.
Federal Law also prohibits retaliation against any employee who files a charge of discrimination or who cooperates with the EEOC’s investigation of a charge. The EEOC is committed to protecting employees who file charges, who complain about discrimination or who are witnesses during an investigation including, if necessary, further court proceedings.
