State & Federal Laws Protecting against Race Discrimination
Race discrimination is prohibited under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Maryland has also passed its own legislation prohibiting race discrimination at the state level. Under both state and federal law, employers cannot refuse to hire an employee, fire someone, or limit pay, promotions, and other opportunities based on race.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 applies to:
- All employers with 15 or more employees
- Federal government agencies
- State government agencies
- Educational institutions
- Employment agencies
- Labor organizations
The Civil Rights Act of 1991 applies to all employers, regardless of the number of employees. Additionally, race discrimination is illegal under Maryland state law and complaints are investigated by the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights. Maryland law requires that you file a claim within six months of the date of discrimination or the date when you first learned of the discriminatory action.
