Employment

Employers are prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, sex, religion, or national origin by the provisions of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. To enforce this Act, which neither defines discrimination nor sets forth mechanisms for enforcement, Congress established the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC views discrimination on a broad level, considering “discrimination” to include not only blatant acts of bias but also programs that have a disparate impact on minorities. The EEOC has enacted numerous regulations that give guidance to employers regarding employment discrimination.
