(1) To fail to hire, refuse to hire or discharge an individual;
(2) To discriminate against any individual, with respect to compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, including promotion. Nothing in this section shall be construed to require any employer to provide benefits, such as insurance, to individuals not employed by the employer;

(6) To print or publish, or cause to be printed or published, any discriminatory notice or advertisement relating to employment. This division shall not be construed so as to expose the person who prints or publishes the notice or advertisement, such as a newspaper, to liability;
(7) To discriminate in referring an individual for employment, whether the referral is by an employment agency, labor organization or any other person.
(8) For any employer, employment agency or labor organization to discriminate against any person because the individual has opposed any practice forbidden by this chapter, or because the individual has made a complaint or testified or assisted in any manner any investigation or proceeding under this chapter.
