The Kansas Act Against Discrimination (KAAD) prohibits discrimination in employment based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, national origin, ancestry, military status, or based on genetic test results (KS Rev. Stat. Sec. 44-1009, Sec. 44-1126). A separate law, the Kansas Age Discrimination in Employment Act (KADEA), prohibits discrimination in employment against persons 18 years of age or older (KS Rev. Stat. Sec. 44-1111et seq.). Both laws apply to all public employers and private employers with four or more employees. Additional information on the KAAD and the KADEA is available.
