Feds Push to remove any Reference to Gender
The Department of Labor has found a new enemy: “The gender binary.”
The agency is so distraught over the terms “he” and “she” that it may soon force businesses to incur multi-million dollar costs. President Obama’s Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act was signed into law in 2014 without mentioning “gender identity.” Changes will create new expenses for employers required to comply with regulators’ demands.
New rules were proposed by the agency on Tuesday that would add “sex stereotyping, transgender status, and gender identity” to kinds of discrimination banned by the law.
