Depending on your employment situation, Federal law makes it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person’s race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, age (40 or older), disability, genetic information, citizenship or immigration status, or service member or veteran status. It is also illegal for Federal contractors and subcontractors to discriminate against those who inquire about, discuss, or disclose their compensation or that of others, subject to certain limitations.
