The Law Prohibits Discrimination In Employment

The federal government's Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces discrimination laws. The EEOC says it is against the law to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information.

Plus, "it is illegal to discriminate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit," according to the EEOC.
