New Sex Discrimination Guidelines Take Effect August 15, 2016

We have previously written about the updated sex discrimination guidelines recently published by OFCCP. Among other mandates, the guidelines require federal government contractors to provide paternity leave on an equal basis to maternity leave.  The guidelines also prohibit discrimination based on gender identity and sex-based stereotypes, such as whether an individual dresses in conformity with their gender.

These guidelines take effect Monday, August 15, 2016. Before then, federal government contractors should review their employee handbooks and policies to make certain they are non-discriminatory and gender-neutral.  Federal government contractors should also revise their training programs to explicitly address the more subtle forms of discrimination described by OFCCP.
