Among the most important laws that impact your workplace are nondiscrimination laws. The federal nondiscrimination laws prohibit discrimination throughout the course of the employee life cycle, including hiring and firing, promotions, pay, benefits and other terms and conditions of employment.
Special Update: The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has issued a final rule regarding “Disparate Impact and Reasonable Factors Other than Age” (RFOA) under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). The rule clarifies that the ADEA prohibits policies and practices that have the effect of harming older individuals more than younger individuals, unless the employer can show that the policy or practice is based on an RFOA. The rule explains the meaning of the RFOA defense and makes the EEOC’s regulations consistent with Supreme Court case law. For more information, please click here.
[Note: Many states have similar laws prohibiting discrimination based on these classifications as well as disability and age, and against other protected classes.]
