Discrimination based on disability is prohibited by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The first occurs when employees or applicants are treated differently on the basis of their physical or mental disabilities.
The second occurs when management fails to make reasonable accommodation for the disabling condition(s).
Discrimination based on reprisal is prohibited by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In these decisions, the Supreme Court made clear that employers are subject to vicarious liability for unlawful harassment by supervisors.
Age discrimination also occurs among age groups who are over age 40.
For example, the selection of a 45-year old candidate may appear to be discriminatory to 55-year old candidates if it can be shown that management has never selected a candidate at or above age 55.
