Employment Laws require federal contractors and subcontractors to take affirmative action to ensure that all individuals have an equal opportunity for employment, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or status as a Vietnam era or special disabled veteran.
However, in recent years affirmative action programs have come under attack by opponents who argue that affirmative action is reverse discrimination. Employers have been sued by Caucasians who claim that they have been discriminated against as a result of employer affirmative action programs. Typically these lawsuits claim that the most qualified individual was passed over for a new position or promotion in favor of a less qualified minority individual because of quotas imposed by affirmative action programs.
