        Discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, or physical handicap is prohibited by both state and federal laws. Some states, including New Jersey, prohibit discrimination in other areas, such as ancestry. On the federal level, employees' rights to be free from discrimination in the workplace are covered by several laws including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the 1991 Civil Rights Act.

It is unlawful under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) for any covered employer to refuse to hire, to discharge, or to otherwise discriminate against any person regarding compensation or terms and conditions of employment because of the person's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. The scope of Title VII's coverage has also been expanded by the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 (PDA). This subsection defines the "because of sex" or "on the basis of sex" to include "because of or on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions; and women affected by pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions shall be treated the same for all employment related purposes, including receipt of benefits under fringe programs, as other persons not so affected but similar in their ability or inability to work. . . ." Other federal antidiscrimination measures include the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution of the United States.
