42 US Code Secs. 2000e through 2000e-17
Title VII prohibits an employer with 15 or more employees to discriminate against an employee or prospective employee because of their race/color, national origin, sex, or religion. Also prohibits sexual harassment in the workplace and prohibit employers from discriminating against an employee or prospective employee because they are pregnant. Employers are also required to treat any leave requests by pregnant employees the same as they would a disabled employee and hold open a job for an employee absent due to pregnancy for as long as they would for an employee on disability leave.
