The South Carolina Human Affairs Law, administered by the state Human Affairs Commission, prohibits discrimination based on race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin, or disability (SC Code Sec. 1-13-10).
State law prohibits employers, employment agencies, or labor organizations from printing or publishing (or causing to be printed or published) a notice or advertisement relating to employment, apprenticeship, or other training program that indicates any preference, limitation, specification, or discrimination based on age, race, religion, color, sex, national origin, or disability . However, religion, sex, or national origin may be mentioned if such specification is based on a bona fide occupational qualification (SC Code Sec. 1-13-80).
