Overview of Race, Gender, and Age Discrimination
Title VII Protects You from Race- or Gender-Based Discrimination at Work
A Los Angeles employment attorney will tell you that Title VII generally prevents applicable employers and entities from discriminating against job applicants or employees on the basis of race, sex, religion, national origin, and color. In particular, Title VII makes it illegal for covered employers or entities to discriminate by:
- Refusing to hire, failing to hire, firing any individual, or in any other manner discriminating against individuals with respect to their privilege, terms, conditions, or compensation because of race, sex, national origin, color, or religion;
- Classifying, limiting, or segregating job applicants or employees in any way that would tend to deprive or actually deprive them of employment opportunities or would otherwise adversely affect their status as employees due to race, sex, color, national origin, or religion; and
- Discriminating against individuals due to race, sex, religion, ethnicity, or national origin in either employment within, or admission to, any programs that provide training, including apprenticeships.
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) prevents applicable entities and employers from discriminating against individuals based on age. Our Los Angeles employment attorney knows that the ADEA specifically prohibits age discrimination against individuals who are age 40 and above. The Act states that it is illegal for employers or entities to: “(1) fail to hire, refuse to hire or to discharge [individuals] or otherwise discriminate against [individuals] with respect to [their] compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual’s age; (2) limit, segregate, or classify employees in any way which would deprive or tend to deprive [individuals] of employment opportunities or otherwise adversely affect [their statuses] as [employees], because of . . . age.”
