Federal Contractors Must Include Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in their Equal Employment Opportunity Statements

Executive Order 13672, signed by President Obama on July 21, 2014, mandates that federal contractors not discriminate against employees on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.  The Order requires compliance for any federal contracts entered into on or after August 19, 2014.  If your work involves contracts with federal agencies, you may want to revisit your EEO statements to ensure compliance.
