>I hire freelancers for $xxx-$xxxx contracts in the games industry, and I've set a blanket ignore to proposals from Indian contractors as well for the same reasons.

Looks like what you're doing is a very clear cut textbook violation of the law.

>The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.




To be fair, it's not discrimination if he simply blanket ignores proposals from contractors located in India. It is if he blanket ignores proposals from any contractors who were born in India, but may be located elsewhere.

It's not as clear cut as you are trying to make it out. Perhaps he simply wasn't clear in his wording....
