From the Paper:

"The single most important U.S. legislation affecting employment law is Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Bennett-Alexander et al, 2003 p.1). The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the lead government agency for processing complaints associated with employment discrimination. This paper describes the process for filing a discrimination complaint and the civil litigation process."
"Under Title VII, an employer can not discriminate on the basis of religion, gender, race, color or national origin. Discrimination, as described in Title VII prohibits employers, labor and management committees and unions from discriminatory practices affecting the hiring, firing, discipline, training, classification, compensation and benefits of individuals."
