Anti-discrimination Law

What is Anti-discrimination Law?


‘Anti-discrimination Law’ is the set of rules designed to protect the employees from discrimination based on their age, race, gender, disabilities, sexual preferences, marital status, etc. The law also applies to candidates who are applying for a position in any company.


The law prevents discrimination and enforces evaluating everybody solely on merit. It stipulates that their personal aspects should not shroud the decision-making abilities of the authorities. Failing to adhere to anti-discrimination laws might invoke heavy penalties for the concerned organizations.


However, there are exemptions to this law based on various factors. For example, a school with a religious affinity might only consider candidates from the same religion to be their teachers.
