Anti-Discrimination Protected Classes
There are a variety of federal laws that protect employees from discrimination based on an individual's membership in a protected class. For example, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin, while the Age Discrimination in Employment Act prohibits age discrimination. States have their own versions of these laws, often protecting additional classes from employment discrimination. CWC's State Anti-Discrimination Protected Categories resource enables members to see what categories are provided state level protection from employment discrimination in addition to being able to quickly review a specific state's human right's statute.
