All companies, including nonprofit organizations, private companies, and government agencies are legally required to treat employees and employment candidates equally. State and federal law recognize that individuals have the right to be treated fairly regardless of their race, age, sex, national origin, gender, disability, religion, history of military service, or pregnancy status.
