Breaking: OFCCP Issues Directive On Gender-Identity Discrimination

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has issued a new directive on gender-identity discrimination, consistent with President Obama’s recent amendment to Executive Order 11246. In essence, the directive says that discrimination based on gender identity is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, a position that has already been adopted by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and many federal courts.
