平权法案(affirmative action)
在美国,平权法案(Affirmative action),又称为积极平权措施,是指美国联邦政府和州政府在法律要求的平等机会。这些措施是为了防止在“肤色、宗教、性别或民族出身”上对雇员或就业申请人的歧视。例如美国劳工部提供的扶持行动包括宣传活动,有针对性的招聘,员工和管理的发展,以及员工的支持计划。美国政府自1960年代推动扶持行动,以纠正历史上与之相关的有明显歧视的缺点。法案进一步推动是要确保公共机构,如大学、医院和军队的扶持行动,更是扶持他们所服务的人群得到平等对待。扶持行动是一个有争议的问题。扶持行动采取了一些政策,如种族配额或大学入学的性别配额,被批评为“逆向歧视”(Reverse Discrimination)的一种形式。
