（f） As used in this subchapter， the phrase ``unlawful employment practice'' shall not be deemed to include any action or measure taken by an employer， labor organization， joint labor-management committee， or employment agency with respect to an individual who is a member of the Communist Party of the United States or of any other organization required to register as a Communist-action or Communist-front organization by final order of the Subversive Activities Control Board pursuant to the Subversive Activities Control Act of 1950 [50 U.S.C. 781 et seq.].

（k） （1） （A） An unlawful employment practice based on disparate impact is established under this title only if-

（B） （i） With respect to demonstrating that a particular employment practice causes a disparate impact as described in subparagraph （A）（i），the complaining party shall demonstrate that each particular challenged employment practice causes a disparate impact， except that if the complaining party can demonstrate to the court that the elements of a respondent's decisionmaking process are not capable of separation for analysis， the decisionmaking process may be analyzed as one employment practice.
（ii） If the respondent demonstrates that a specific employment practice does not cause the disparate impact， the respondent shall not be required to demonstrate that such practice is required by business necessity.

（l） It shall be an unlawful employment practice for a respondent， in connection with the selection or referral of applicants or candidates for employment or promotion， to adjust the scores of， use different cutoff scores for， or otherwise alter the results of， employment related tests on the basis of race， color， religion， sex， or national origin.
（m） Except as otherwise provided in this title， an unlawful employment practice is established when the complaining party demonstrates that race，color， religion， sex， or national origin was a motivating factor for any employment practice， even though other factors also motivated the practice.
（n） （1） （A） Notwithstanding any other provision of law， and except as provided in paragraph （2）， an employment practice that implements and is within the scope of a litigated or consent judgment or order that resolves a claim of employment discrimination under the Constitution or Federal civil rights laws may not be challenged under the circumstances described in subparagraph （B）。
（B） A practice described in subparagraph （A） may not be challenged in a claim under the Constitution or Federal civil rights laws-
（i） by a person who， prior to the entry of the judgment or order described in subparagraph （A）， had-
（I） actual notice of the proposed judgment or order sufficient to apprise such person that such judgment or order might adversely affect the interests and legal rights of such person and that an opportunity was available to present objections to such judgment or order by a future date certain； and
（II） a reasonable opportunity to present objections to such judgment or order； or
（ii） by a person whose interests were adequately represented by another person who had previously challenged the judgment or order on the same legal grounds and with a similar factual situation， unless there has been an intervening change in law or fact.

（3） Any action not precluded under this subsection that challenges an employment consent judgment or order described in paragraph （1） shall be brought in the court， and if possible before the judge， that entered such judgment or order.

非法的雇佣实践SEC. 2000e-2. [Section 703]
（f）正如本小节所使用的那样，“非法的雇佣实践”这个词语将不适用于下述情况，即雇主、劳工组织、劳工管理联合委员会或者职业介绍所针对美国共产党成员或者其他由颠覆活动管理委员会根据1950年颠覆远东管理条例[50 U.S.C.781 et seq.]最终确认的共产主义性质的组织成员作出的歧视行动或措施。
（h）不管本小节的其他规定，如果雇主对不同的雇员应用不同标准的赔偿金、不同的期限、不同的条件或者不同的权利，这些不同的标准是依照一个真实的资历或者绩效制度作出的，或者根据劳动产出的数量和质量衡量收入的制度作出的，或者根据不同雇员的劳动地点作出的，而不是雇主根据个人的种族、肤色、宗教、性别或者民族等因素进行歧视的结果，则这种雇佣实践就不是非法的；如果雇主是根据专业发展技能测验的结果作出上述不同标准的，而这种技能测验不是用于根据不同人的种族、肤色、宗教、性别或者民族进行歧视的，测验结果也不是被事先设计好的，则雇主的雇佣实践也不是非法的。如果雇主根据雇员的性别区分决定付与雇员的工资和赔偿金，只要根据第29章第206（b）[section 6（d） of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938， as amended]的规定，这种区分行为是允许的，则在本小节下，雇主的雇佣实践就不是非法的。
