Equal Opportunity Law

Equal opportunity Law as administered by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission includes rights given to individuals under various laws such as the Civil Rights Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment act and others.  In addition to employment, equal opportunity also refers to equal access to such services as health care, education and social welfare.  The collection of laws passed by the United States Congress give protections to individuals with regard to discrimination of race, gender, age, national origin and religion.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission was established to enforce all of the federal laws regarding discrimination and equal treatment in the workplace.  Some of the laws enforced by the EEOC are called "affirmative action" laws which provide certain segments of the population that suffer persistent discrimination in employment preferential rights over those not in these population segments.  Some consider affirmative action nothing more than reverse discrimination but it has helped bring many socially oppressed population segments escape a poverty driven cycle.

Federal and state governments require the implementation of affirmative action programs in governmental hiring and contracting.  Some countries consider such practices to be illegal under their equal opportunity laws.  The concepts of equal opportunity and affirmative action have been controversial in their implementation and in their attempt to arrive at a state of equality for all.
