Final Rule on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity

Final rule to protect workers from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity announced by US Labor Department

On Dec. 3, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), announced final regulations implementing Executive Order 13672 (EO). The EO prohibits federal contractors with contracts of $10,000 or more and their subcontractors from engaging in employment discrimination on the bases of sexual orientation or gender identity. The final rule will take effect 120 days after it is published in the Federal Register and will apply to federal contracts entered into or modified on or after that date.
