- the Fair Labor Standards Act, which establishes minimum wage and salary criteria, and defines whether or not a job is entitled to overtime compensation;
- the Equal Pay Act, which ensures staff receive equal pay for equal work;
- the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which ensures no discrimination based on race, religion, national origin, color, or sex; and
- the American with Disabilities Act, which takes into account hiring practices for those people with disabilities.
