Discriminatory Club Law and Legal Definition

A discriminatory club refers a club organized for business, pleasure, recreation, or other social purpose if the club restricts its membership or use of facilities on the basis of sex, race, and color.

The following is an example of a state law on discriminatory club:

Discriminatory club means a membership club, organization, association, or society, or the premises thereof, which practices discrimination in its membership policy or in access to its services and facilities, except any facility, as to discrimination based on sex, which is distinctly private in nature such as restrooms, shower rooms, bath houses, health clubs and other similar facilities for which the Illinois Department of Human Rights, in its rules and regulations, may grant exemptions based on bona fide considerations of public policy.
