Under Tucson’s Human Relations Ordinance (Tucson City Code, Chapter 17), it is unlawful for an employer with 1-100 employees; an owner, operator, lessee, manager, agent, or employee of a public accommodation; or a housing provider to discriminate against an individual based on:
|Sexual Orientation||Gender Identity|
|Familial Status||Marital Status|
An employer cannot refuse to hire, discharge, or discriminate (in compensation or in terms, conditions, or privileges of employment) based on these protected characteristics. The law also prohibits an employer from discriminating or retaliating against an employee who files a complaint about discrimination, or an employee who participates in an investigation by testifying, assisting, or participating in the matter of investigation.
The Tucson Non-Discrimination Poster must be posted in conspicuous places by every person or business subject to the Tucson Human Relations Ordinance. Employers, employment agencies, and labor organizations subject to the article must ensure the notice is available to employees and applicants for employment.
It is a civil infraction for any person to violate any provision of the Tucson Human Relations Ordinance. A person found responsible for a civil infraction for the first time shall be fined not less than three hundred dollars ($300.00) nor more than twenty-five hundred dollars ($2,500.00) per civil infraction, with increasing penalties for repeat infraction.
