Alaska Civil Rights: What you need to know

The Alaska Human Rights Law prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, age, physical or mental disability, sex, marital status, changes in marital status, pregnancy, or parenthood unless the reasonable requirements of the job require distinctions based on age, disability, sex, marital status, changes in marital status, pregnancy, or parenthood (AK Stat. Sec. 18.80.010 et seq.). The Law applies to all public and private employers in the state, except for nonprofit social clubs or nonprofit charitable, educational, or religious organizations. Under the Law, it is unlawful for an employer to:
• Refuse to hire, bar a person from employment, or otherwise discriminate in the terms, conditions and privileges of employment based on a protected characteristic.
• Directly or indirectly, through a statement, advertisement, job application, or inquiry place a limitation or specification as to sex, disability, marital status, changes in marital status, pregnancy, parenthood, age, race, creed, color, or national origin, unless based on a bona fide occupational qualification (BFOQ).
• Discharge, expel or otherwise discriminate against a person for opposing any unlawful practice, or for testifying, filing a complaint, or assisting in a proceeding under the Law.
• Directly express, in connection with prospective employment, a limitation, specification or discrimination as to sex, disability, marital status, changes in marital status, pregnancy, parenthood, age, race, religion, creed, color, or national origin, unless based on a BFOQ.
• Aid, abet, compel or coerce a person to engage in an unlawful act under the Law.
