President Obama Signs Executive Order Prohibiting Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity
On July 21, 2014, President Barack Obama signed an amendment to Executive Orders 11246 and 11478 which prohibits discrimination by federal contractors on the basis of an applicant's or employee's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. The amendment prohibits discrimination by a federal contractor on the basis of a person's sexual orientation and gender identity. The amendment is effective immediately, but the nondiscrimination provisions become effective after the Labor Department's Office of Federal Contract Compliance and Programs (OFCCP) issues regulations governing the change. Those regulations are expected in early 2015.
If you have any questions about the amendment, you may contact Thomas P. Brady at (313) 965-2891, email@example.com , or another member of Clark Hill's Labor and Employment Practice Group.
