Idaho Civil Rights: What you need to know

The Idaho Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or disability (ID Code Sec. 67-5901 et seq.). Sexual harassment is considered a form of sex discrimination. The Act applies to all public employers and private employers with five or more employees. Under the Act, it is unlawful for an employer to:
• Fail or refuse to hire, discharge or otherwise discriminate against an individual with respect to compensation or other terms or conditions of employment on the basis of a protected characteristic.
• Reduce the wages of any employee in order to comply with the requirements of the Act.
