EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYMENT
Equal employment opportunity is the principle that Congress made law in 1964 by passing the Civil Rights Act. By its terms, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 requires that employers make all employment decisions without regard to any individual’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin, and provides that race, color, and national origin will not be taken into consideration in the granting of the benefits of any federal financial assistance program.
Equal opportunity was not a new concept in 1964.The Civil Rights Acts of 1866 and 1870, which are codified in the United State Code, guaranteed that all persons within the jurisdiction of the United States have the same right as is enjoyed by white citizens in every state and territory to make and enforce contracts, to sue, be parties, and give evidence, and to enjoy the full and equal benefit of all laws and proceedings for the security of persons and property. This protection of the rights of nonwhite people was long in place, but the 1964 Act was intended to make some of those rights more clearly and surely enforceable.The scope, remedies, and procedures to the new law added to those of the old law, and the new law extended benefits to a broader range of employees, protecting them from discrimination on the basis of religion, national origin, and sex as well as race or color.
The Civil Rights Acts are not the only sources of federal rights regarding employment discrimination. Two major statures relate to age discrimination in employment.A 1967 enactment which, was amended in 1978, protects older workers from many types of discriminatory treatment. Age discrimination by employers receiving federal funds was addressed by a separate statute in 1975. Women were granted a large degree of protection from was discrimination in employment by the passage of a federal statute in 1963, which was supplemented by the sex discrimination provisions of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Sex discrimination in education was addressed by Congress in 1972. Equal opportunity for persons with disabilities was made the subject of federal law in 1973 and 1992. Employment of disabled veterans and veterans of the Vietnam era was the focus of a 1974 law.
The immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) prohibits employment of discrimination on the basis of national origin and citizenship status against citizens and certain classes of aliens.
