The Civil Rights Act of 1964

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was a significant piece of legislation that made discrimination illegal. The law prohibited discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, or religion. One of the challenges that managers face is recognizing discrimination. When first written, Title VII focused primarily on African-Americans and Caucasians. However, as immigrants continued to join the U.S. workforce, the definition of race discrimination evolved to preserve the original purpose.

As you can imagine, the law has significantly impacted employment relationships in the U.S. and changed employment practices, especially in hiring, promotions, and compensation. Just to note, while the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects people at work, it also extends to consumers.
