Title VII and Anti-Discrimination Laws

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964: Title VII is a provision of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits discrimination in virtually every employment circumstance on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, pregnancy, or national origin. The purpose of Title VII's protections is to "level the playing field" by requiring employers to consider only objective, job-related criteria in making employment decisions. 

  • Pregnancy Discrimination Act: This amendment to Title VII expands the protections regarding “sex” to include prohibiting sex discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth and/or a medical condition related to pregnancy or childbirth.

  • Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA): Prohibits sex-based wage discrimination between men and women who perform equal work in the same workplace.

  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA): Protects employees or future employees who are 40 or older from discrimination in the workplace.

  • Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA):  Makes it illegal to discriminate against a qualified person with a disability from employment or during employment.
