Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, as amended, and other Federal Laws and regulations forbid discrimination in employment by private employers, labor organizations, employment agencies, State and local governments and public agencies. The Attorney General is authorized to sue to enjoin and remedy discrimination in employment by State and local government employers under Title VII. Upon referral from the Department of Labor, the Attorney General is authorized to sue to enforce the non-discrimination in employment provisions of Executive Order 11246, as amended, with respect to government contractors and subcontractors. The Attorney General does not, as such, represent specific individuals, though the public interest is served by obtaining relief for them through pattern or practice or 706 referral lawsuits. In addition, the Civil Rights Division represents other Federal agencies in challenges to laws and orders that authorize affirmative action in employment, procurement and contracting on federally-assisted projects.
