Seventh Circuit Respects Corporate Formalities in Assessing Title VII Coverage
Is your company covered by federal civil rights laws?
When it comes to federal civil rights laws, under most of them employers are covered only if they have 15 or more employees. If a company has fewer than 15 employees, they are not subject to the laws, which is a result of a Congressional policy judgment. So what happens if a business with less than 15 employees has a sister company that also has employees? This white paper reviews if those companies are subject to the federal civil rights law.
