The Kansas Act Against Discrimination prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of national origin or ancestry (KS Stat. Sec. 44-1001 et seq.).
Practices or policies that discriminate against immigrants legally eligible for employment may constitute national origin discrimination within the meaning of the Act. The law applies to all public employers and private employers with four or more employees.
Citizenship requirements that are made a condition of employment discriminate on the basis of national origin in violation of the state law. Inquiries about a person's citizenship or country of birth are unlawful and imply discrimination on the basis of national origin.
