Employment Discrimination: Sex, Race, Age, Sexual Orientation, National Origin, Disability

Employment discrimination laws prevent discrimination based on race, sex, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, physical disability, and age by employers. Discriminatory practices include bias in hiring, promotion, job assignment, termination, and compensation, as well as various types of harassment.


Many civil rights laws affect virtually every employment decision. These laws include:


Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and 42 U.S.C. § 1981, as amended by the Civil Rights Act of 1991

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act

The Equal Pay Act

Other local, state and federal civil rights and anti-discrimination statutes such as the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act and the Philadelphia Fair Practices Ordinance Act


Employers are not permitted to fire; fail to hire; ail to promote or give a pay increase to; verbally or physically harass; segregate or assign; or otherwise differentiate a person because of his or her race, color, age, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy, ancestry, religion, disability, or national origin.
