What is Title VII?
San Fernando Valley Employment Lawyers Explain Title VII
As one of the most widely used anti-discrimination laws, Title VII enacts several laws and regulations that employers must follow.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it illegal for employers to:
- Discriminate against employees based on characteristics / personal traits
- Retaliate against employees who report acts of discrimination
If your employer has violated Title VII, it may be subject to various legal consequences, such as damages and being required to adjust their company’s policies.
Title VII protects individuals from being discriminated against by their employee based on their:
- Sex / gender
- Religious beliefs
- Race / skin color
Employers are not allowed to base important decisions, such as hiring or firing, on the personal traits of individuals, as listed above.
