Racial Discrimination
National Summary
What is race discrimination? The federal equal employment opportunity law, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, makes it unlawful for all public employers and private employers of 15 or more employees to discriminate against applicants or employees based on race. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has issued enforcement guidance to assist employers to prevent this form of discrimination and has an initiative known as "E-RACE" to strengthen enforcement of Title VII. Another federal law, Section 1981 of the Civil Rights Act of 1866, prohibits public and private employers from discriminating on the basis of race.
