The Georgia Fair Employment Practices Act prohibits state employers from discriminating on the basis of national origin and makes it unlawful to refuse to hire, discharge, or otherwise discriminate against any individual with respect to the individual's compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment because of national origin (GA Code Sec. 89-1703).
The Act applies to any state agency that employs 15 or more employees.
There is no state provision prohibiting discrimination by private employers. However, private employers with 15 or more employees must comply with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of national origin (42 USC 2000e et seq.). IRCA also prohibits discrimination on the basis of citizenship.
