Gender Discrimination


I have a question about gender discrimination. Is there state (OH) or federal law protections for gender discrimination under small employers? If an employer has 10-15 (or less) employees does that employer fall under State (OH) or Federal discrimination rules/regs.

Ohio civil rights law applies to employers of four or more

Ohio Revised Code Chapter 4112 is Ohio's civil rights act. It applies to employers of four or more. In addition, the Ohio Supreme Court has held that employers with less than four employees are bound by a common law prohibition against sexually harassing conduct.

Best regards,
