Civil Rights Act of 1964

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was put in place to avoid discrimination in hiring, compensation, conditions, and privileges of employment based on race, religion, color, sex, or nationality (DeCenzo& Robbins, 2007)
Katzenbach v. McClung and Heart of Atlanta v. United States

(Legal Information Institute, 2011)
Civil Rights Act of 1964 ensures that all applicants are afforded an equal opportunity of being hired and there is no discrimination with respect to one’s gender, religion, race, color, or origin. It also ensures that job candidates are selected and considered because of their skills and talent.
Under the law employers are required to post signs with the Title VII description in employee break-rooms. This helps ensure that companies are meeting the requirements and that they are hiring and promoting minorities which can protect them against discrimination law suits.
