Kan. Admin. Regs. § 21-31-2 - Covert and overt discrimination

Current through Register Vol. 40, No. 39, September 30, 2021

The Kansas act against discrimination is intended to eliminate covert as well as the overt practices of discrimination, and the commission will, therefore, examine with particular concern cases where persons within the jurisdiction of the commission have been denied equal opportunities for reasons which are grounded in national origin or ancestry considerations. Examples of cases of this character include: The use of tests in the English language where the individual tested came from circumstances where English was not that person's first language or mother tongue, and where English language skill is not a requirement of the task to be performed; denial of equal opportunity to persons married to or associated with persons of a specific national origin or ancestry; denial of equal opportunity because of membership in lawful organizations identified with or seeking to promote the interests of national groups; denial of equal opportunity because of attendance at schools or churches commonly utilized by persons of a given national origin or ancestry; denial of equal opportunity because their name or that of their spouse reflects a certain national origin or ancestry; and denial of equal opportunity to persons who as a class of persons tend to fall outside national norms for height and weight where such height and weight specifications are not necessary for the performance of the work involved.
