Employment Discrimination and the 2009 H1N1 Flu Virus (Swine Flu)
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of national origin, for example, discrimination against Mexicans.
- See Title VII statute, regulations, and guidance prohibiting national origin discrimination.
- Title VII prohibits national origin discrimination against employees who work in the United States for covered employers, regardless of citizenship or work authorization. While federal law prohibits employers from employing individuals lacking work authorization, employers who nonetheless employ undocumented workers are prohibited from discriminating against those workers.
