Details for Help Wanted


NOTICE TO ADVERTISERS Help Wanted advertising is placed under “Help Wanted” column headings for the convenience of job seekers. Federal laws prohibit employers, employment agencies, and labor unions, with certain carefully defined exceptions, from discriminating because of race, color, religion, sex, age, disability or national origin in the placement of “Help Wanted” advertisements. Because of the exceptions, these laws do not require that newspapers screen advertising and decide which employers are exempt and which are not. Literature pertaining to the laws does suggest, however, that newspapers remind employers that if they are indeed, under provisions of the laws, certain advertising could subject them to legal action and possible penalties.
