Gender ID Bias Included in Fed Contractor Order

Federal contractors must not discriminate against employees based on gender identity or transgender status. The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Prgrams made that clear yesterday in Directive 2014-02.

It’s a follow-up to Executive Order 13672 issued earlier this year by President Obama, which prohibits federal contractors from discriminating against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees and applicants.

But that latest order didn’t specify gender identity and transgender status as types of sex discrimination.

The new directive clears that up.
