Understanding Unlawful Employment Practices
The Milwaukee Federal Civil Rights Act Lawyer will help you navigate the intricacies of the law. Specifically, it is essential to be familiar with 42 U.S.C. Sec. 2000e-2 – the provision that addresses unlawful employment practices.
It is considered an unlawful employment practice for an employer to engage in the following actions:
- Failing or refusing to hire, discharge, or discriminate against an individual in terms of compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
- Limiting, segregating, or classifying employees or applicants for employment in a manner that deprives or adversely affects their employment opportunities or status based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
Impermissible Consideration of Race, Color, Religion, Sex, or National Origin
Except as provided elsewhere in this subchapter, an unlawful employment practice is established if the complaining party demonstrates that race, color, religion, sex, or national origin was a motivating factor for any employment practice, even if other factors were also involved.
Other Unlawful Employment Practices
The 42 U.S.C. Sec. 2000e-3 section outlines additional unlawful employment practices. Employers, employment agencies, labor organizations, or joint labor-management committees controlling training or retraining programs must not discriminate against employees, applicants, or members based on their opposition to unlawful employment practices or their participation in related investigations or proceedings.
Furthermore, it is considered an unlawful employment practice to print or publish any notice or advertisement that indicates a preference, limitation, specification, or discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. However, certain bona fide occupational qualifications related to religion, sex, or national origin may be allowed.
