Federal Law
Recommendations for Managers

From the Paper:

"The determinative issue in establishing a violation of Title VII is whether members of one protected class suffer from disadvantageous terms and conditions of employment. In essence, this law prohibits discrimination in employment decisions regarding promotion or demotion, payment of compensation or benefits, availability of job training, referral systems for employment, decisions regarding dismissal, work rules, and any other term, condition, or privilege of employment.
"Title VII applies to employers who have fifteen or more employees for at least twenty weeks in the current or preceeding year, all employment agencies, labor unions with 15 or more members, state and local government and their agencies, and most federal government employment.
"In relation to state law, Section 708 of Title VII specifically permits parallel state regulation of employment discrimination as long as the state law does not conflict with Title VII. At present time, every state has a law which forbids discrimination in employment."
