Employers are required to ask the EEOC about employment to file an Equal Employment Opportunity Report. These questions must be voluntary for applicants to comply with all US state and federal laws. The employer may not discriminate based on the employer’s preferences or refuse to provide information to an employee who refuses.

What is Title 7 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964?
Under Title VII, employment discrimination against people of color, religion, gender or sexual orientation is prohibited.
Title 42 of the US Code states that discrimination based on race, color or national origin is prohibited by the federal government. This federal law is a reminder of the United States’ commitment to fairness and equality. Despite this, the Trump administration has used this legal tool in recent months to deny asylum seekers a fair and impartial hearing. As a result, there are thousands vulnerable people their right to due process and appeal has been denied. Human rights advocates and other legal experts have condemned the use of Title 42, arguing that it violates fundamental constitutional rights. The Trump administration’s actions violate Title 42 and violate the values the United States stands for. To be a nation, we must ensure that the rights of asylum seekers are respected and that they have a chance to be heard. Title 42’s ideals of justice and fairness cannot be ignored.
