Alabama does not have a comprehensive fair employment practices law. Employers are, however, subject to all relevant federal antidiscrimination laws.
Age discrimination. The Alabama Age Discrimination Law prohibits employers from discrimination based on age (40 and over). The law also prohibits employers from printing or publishing any discriminatory job notice or advertisement indicating a preference, limitation, or specification based on age. The law applies to all employers with 20 or more employees (AL Code Sec. 25-1-20 et seq.).
Public employers. Alabama law prohibits state employers from discrimination based on disability (includes blindness, visual impairments, and any other physical disability), unless the disability prevents performance of the job in question (AL Code Sec. 21-7-8).
