Federal laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibit discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation/gender identity, pregnancy, race/color, national origin, disability, religion, and age.
Examples of Unlawful Discrimination May Include:
- Failure to promote
- Change in job assignment
- Making work conditions more difficult
- Interference with job performance
- Disciplinary action

Under Title VII, the ADA and the ADEA, private sector employees must file a charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within 180 calendar days of a discriminatory action. You will forfeit important legal rights if you do not file a timely charge with the EEOC. If you’ve already missed a deadline, call to discuss your options.
Laws Enforced by the EEOC Include:
