South Carolina Employment Discrimination Update

Posted by on 12/22/2020 to South Carolina

In August of 2020, South Carolina released the new Employment Discrimination poster reflecting a redesigned format, a new logo, and information about the Lactation Support Act, which includes lactation in the list of reasonable accommodations under conducts covered by law.

The South Carolina Human Affairs Law protects you against employment discrimination when it involves: 

  • Unfair treatment or harassment because of race, color, religion, sex (including sexual harassment and pregnancy), national origin, age (40 and above), and disability.
  • Denial of a reasonable workplace accommodation that you need because of your religious beliefs or disability.
  • Retaliation because you complained about job discrimination, or assisted with a job discrimination investigation or lawsuit. 

If you believe you have been discriminated against at work, you can file a Charge of Discrimination.
