What is Title 7 and what protections does it provide?

Protections against discrimination in the workplace are important, but many workers may wonder exactly what protections they enjoy and what the legal basis for those protections is. Title 7 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, commonly referred to as anti-discrimination laws, prohibits employers with 15 or more employees from engaging in discrimination based on race, national origin, gender or religion.

Discrimination and harassment are not tolerated in the workplace

Discrimination and harassment in the workplace may make every day a challenge for workers facing such treatment. On a daily basis, victims in these situations may face a hostile work environment and concerns related to a demotion, wrongful termination or retaliation from an employer for reporting the illegal conduct they are subjected to. It is illegal for an employer to fire an employee in retaliation for reporting illegal conduct or to treat them differently.

Workers should understand wrongful termination protections

A job and job security is understandably important to many workers. Because of this, it is important for employees who have been recently fired or laid off to understand their wrongful termination rights in circumstances when the action taken may have been unlawful. In some circumstances, the employee may be able to obtain monetary damages, a severance package or other damages.

What is the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

If you have suffered age discrimination or other types of discrimination in the workplace, you may wonder what options are available to you. You might have heard of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or EEOC but have wondered what it is and what it does. The EEOC is responsible for enforcing federal laws that prohibit discrimination against either an employee or job applicant based on the party's race, color, national origin, religion, sex, which includes pregnancy, gender identity and sexual orientation, age, which is those 40 or older, disability or genetic information.
