AS 18.80.200. Purpose.
- (a) It is determined and declared as a matter of legislative finding that discrimination against an inhabitant of the
state because of race, religion, color, national origin, age, sex, physical or mental disability, marital status,
changes in marital status, pregnancy, or parenthood is a matter of public concern and that this discrimination not only
threatens the rights and privileges of the inhabitants of the state but also menaces the institutions of the state and
threatens peace, order, health, safety, and general welfare of the state and its inhabitants.
- (b) Therefore, it is the policy of the state and the purpose of this chapter to eliminate and prevent discrimination in
employment, in credit and financing practices, in places of public accommodation, in the sale, lease, or rental of real
property because of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, age, physical or mental disability, marital status,
changes in marital status, pregnancy or parenthood. It is also the policy of the state to encourage and enable
physically and mentally disabled persons to participate fully in the social and economic life of the state and to
engage in remunerative employment. It is not the purpose of this chapter to supersede laws pertaining to child labor,
the age of majority, or other age restrictions or requirements.
