Federal law protections against employment discrimination are set forth generally under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII).  Title VII prohibits employers from discriminating against covered employees because of that employee's race, color, religion, sex or national origin.

Covered Employees
The provisions of Title VII only apply to employers who employee 15 or more employees.   Therefore, if you work for a smaller employer, you would not be entitled to the protections provided by Title VII.  Please note, however, that California's Fair Employment and Housing Act prohibits the same type of discrimination as Title VII, and applies to employers who only employee 5 or more employees (For sexual harassment claims, FEHA applies to employers who only employ one or more employees!)
