The Kansas Act Against Discrimination prohibits discrimination in employment based on religion (KS Stat. Sec. 44-1001 et seq.). The law applies to all public employers and private employers with four or more employees. It is unlawful to:
• Refuse to hire or discharge a person or to otherwise discriminate against a person in compensation or in terms, conditions, or privileges of employment because of religion.
• Limit, segregate, separate, classify, or make any distinction among employees on the basis of religion or follow any employment procedure or practice that results in discrimination on the basis of religion, unless there is a valid business necessity.
• Print or circulate any statement, advertisement, or publication, or use any form of application for employment that expresses, directly or indirectly, any limitation, specification, or discrimination as religion, unless based on a bona fide occupational qualification (BFOQ).
• Make any inquiry in connection with prospective employment that expresses, directly or indirectly, any limitation, specification, or discrimination as religion, unless based on a BFOQ.
• Discharge, expel, or otherwise discriminate against any person because such person has opposed any practices or acts forbidden under the Act or because the person has filed a complaint, testified, or assisted in any proceedings under the Act.
• Discriminate, segregate, or separate applicants or employees on the basis of religion in admission, assignments, promotions, or transfers to apprenticeship, training, or retraining programs, including on-the-job training.
• Aid, act, incite, compel, or coerce any of the conduct forbidden under the Act, or attempt to do so.
