February 2012

Why Read This

This overview of employment laws that frequently generate claims United Educators (UE) covers can clarify areas of confusion and can serve as a handy reference guide when troublesome situations arise.

Ensuring supervisors have a basic understanding of key employment laws can help them handle many situations on their own and recognize when to get help as situations become more complex.

Key Takeaways

  • Federal laws prohibit discrimination based on age, color, disability, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, and veterans’ status.
  • The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) protects people age 40 or older, and some states protect people even younger.
