There are no affirmative action requirements for private employers in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Human Relations Act makes it unlawful for any employer to discriminate against an applicant, employee, or independent contractor on the basis of race, color, familial status, religious creed, ancestry, age, sex, national origin, or non-job-related handicap or disability or the use of a guide or support animal because of the blindness, deafness, or physical handicap of any individual or independent contractor (PA Stat. Tit. 43 Sec. 951et seq.). The Act covers employers with four or more employees.
