A number of federal, state, and local laws forbid discrimination against individuals or classes of persons based on factors such as race, color, national origin, sex, religion, and disability. Among the best known federal laws that prohibit discrimination in the workplace are the Title VII of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1991, which address illegal discrimination by employers, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which protects individuals with disabilities from discrimination in several areas, including education and employment.
