Idaho Racial Discrimination: What you need to know

The Idaho Human Rights Act prohibits employers from discriminating against applicants or employees on the basis of race or color (ID Code Sec. 67-5901 et seq.). The law applies to all public employers and private employers with five or more employees. It also applies to contractors that provide goods or services to the state. Under the Act, it is unlawful for an employer to:
