    Executive Order establishes the principles of affirmative employment for Federal employees and requires the Federal Government to create affirmative programs to ensure equal employment opportunities for minorities and women. Any individual who wishes to file suit under Title VII or the ADA is required to exhaust his or her administrative remedies prior to suing the employer in court.

When the evidence is less strong, the charge may be assigned for follow up investigation to determine whether it is likely that a violation has occurred. Title VII also prohibits discrimination because of participation in schools or places of worship associated with a particular racial, ethnic, or religious group. EEOC will then attempt conciliation with the employer to develop a remedy for the discrimination.

    To protect legal rights, it is always best to contact EEOC promptly when discrimination is suspected. This day filing deadline is extended to days if the charge also is covered by a state or local anti-discrimination law. The safety and health standards address numerous hazards including roof falls, flammable and explosive gases, fire, electricity, equipment rollovers and maintenance, airborne contaminants, noise, and respirable dust. However, it does not force an employer to employ a worker whose disability would create an "undue hardship" onto his business for example, a paraplegic cannot work on a construction site, and a blind person cannot be a chauffeur. Drug and Alcohol Use Employees and applicants currently engaging in the illegal use of drugs are not protected by the ADA when an employer acts on the basis of such use.
