Employment Discrimination

The Georgia Commissioner on Equal Opportunity, through its Employment Division, enforces the Fair Employment Practices Act of 1978, which makes it unlawful for a state agency to discriminate against any individual on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, handicap/disability, national origin, or age in connection with employment.
