Employment Discrimination (Title VII)

Home/Areas of Practice/Employment Discrimination (Title VII)

In 1964, Congress passed the comprehensive Civil Rights Act and its 11 Titles. Title VII (also known as 42 U.S.C. § 2000e­2, or Subchapter VI of Chapter 21 of Title 42 USC) prohibits discrimination of employees by employers on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. This applies to employers who maintain 15 or more employees for every work day in a 20­ week period of a calendar year. Title VII also protects employees from sexual harassment, or discrimination on the basis of disability, age, or pregnancy, as in the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) and the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990, As Amended in 2008 (ADAAA). 42 USC 1981 goes on to ensure that all people within the United States receive equal treatment under the law with regard to contracts and agreements.
