The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment on the basis of race, religion, national origin, sex (pregnancy), religion, age, or disability (pregnancy).
Title VII of the Civil Rights Acts protects individuals against employment discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, sex, religion, age, or disability in regard to hiring, termination, promotion, compensation, job training, or any other term, condition, or privilege of employment.
Age discrimination occurs when a person is treated less favorably because of his/her age. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) only forbids age discrimination against people who are age 40 or older and applies to employees and job applicants.
Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits private employers, state and local governments, employment agencies and labor unions from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities.
