Human Rights Violations in the United States: A Report on U.S. Compliance with The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights

Pirmais vāks
The report finds significant shortcomings in the U.S. record, from the summary repatriation of Haitian boat people to the brutal treatment of prisoners. In these and other cases, the ICCR may offer greater protection against rights abuses than current interpretation U.S. law. The ACLU and Human Rights Watch call on the Clinton administration to take steps to correct these abuses and make it possible to invoke the protections of the covenant in U.S. court case.

24. lappuse - It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer — (1) to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin...
