Indiana Advertising: What you need to know

Indiana's Civil Rights Act prohibits employers from having employment practices that discriminate against an applicant or employee solely on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, national origin, ancestry, military status, or disability. While there is no state law that specifically addresses job advertisements, any advertisement that expresses a preference as to one of these factors would violate these provisions. The Civil Rights Act applies to employers with six or more employees (IN Code Sec. 22-9-1-2, Sec. 22-9-2-1 ).

The Employment Discrimination Against Disabled Persons Act prohibits employment practices that discriminate on the basis of disability (IN Code Sec. 22-9-5–1 et seq.). The Act applies to employers with 15 or more employees.
An employer may not publish or otherwise circulate any advertisement for employment that he or she knows is false, misleading, or deceptive (IN Code Sec. 35-43-5-3).
