Employment and labor laws prohibit discriminatory or unfair treatment of an applicant or employee based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, or parental status. Federal law forbids “discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.”
Employment policies or practices applicable to all employees may be illegal if they have “a negative impact on the employment of people of a particular class and is not job-related and necessary to the operation of the business.”
