Various types of anti-discrimination laws have been enacted throughout the 20th century, all of which are regulated by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Under these laws, it is illegal to discriminate against either an applicant or employee based on that person’s race, color, religion, national origin, sex (including pregnancy), disability, age (40 and older), or genetic information. These laws also make it illegal to retaliate against a person because he or she complained about discrimination, complained about discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit.
