Kansas Administrative Regulations
Agency 21 - KANSAS HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION
Article 44 - COMPLIANCE
Section 21-44-4 - Records
No notation identifying the race, religion, color, sex, physical handicap, national origin or ancestry of an individual shall be made or maintained on application forms or other records except as provided otherwise in these rules. Violations of this rule shall be deemed evidence of discrimination unless a person may show it is acting in conformity with an explicit mandate of a local, state or federal civil rights agency. The commission recommends the maintenance of a permanent record as to the racial, sexual, religious or ethnic identity of an individual for the purpose of complying with various reporting requirements only where the person maintains such records separately from the individual's basic personnel file or other similar records available to those responsible for decisions (e.g., as a part of an automatic data processing system in the payroll department).
