When hiring new employees there are a number of rules and regulations you must follow and abide by. Failure to do this could lead to legal action, fines and even imprisonment.

Four areas to consider are as follows:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
The above act prohibits any discrimination based on race, sex, religion, ethnicity, age or disability.

An employer must make sure when hiring new staff members, that they only focus on job-specific requirements and skills. They must also make sure that they do not let discrimination cloud their judgment when promoting members of staff and making other decisions regarding staff members.

  • The Americans with Disabilities Act
Used to Prevent disabled individuals from being unfairly discriminated against. It covers numerous disabilities, including physical and mental impairment.

  • The Equal Pay Act.
The Act means that any employer is unable to offer differing pay grades to employees doing the same work in the same position.

It specifically prohibits a pay difference between male and female employees. Therefore businesses are not allowed to pay a man more than a woman if they are doing the same job, under the same conditions.

  • State Laws
The aforementioned laws are dictated federally by the government and must be upheld by the entire country. However, other local laws may also require employers to follow state guidelines, rules and regulations.
