The Delaware Discrimination in Employment Act prohibits all public employers and private employers of four or more persons from discriminating in employment on the basis of race or color (DE Code Tit. 19 Sec. 710 et seq.).
Under the Act, it is unlawful to:
• Fail or refuse to hire or to discharge an individual or otherwise discriminate with respect to compensation, terms, conditions or privileges of employment because of race or color.
• Limit, segregate, or classify employees in any way that deprives, or tends to deprive, any individual of employment opportunities or otherwise adversely affects an employees' status because of race or color.
• Make employment decisions related to selection for training or apprenticeship on the basis of race.
• Retaliate or otherwise discriminate against any individual for opposing an unlawful discriminatory practice, or for testifying, assisting, or participating in any manner in an investigation, proceeding, or enforcement hearing.
