The next protected category: Gender Identity

The federal government recently added language to its jobs website banning  discrimination in federal hiring on the basis of gender identity (i.e. transgendered status).     While the government has apparently prohibited such discrimination for several years, the move is nonetheless being hailed by civil rights groups and denounced by conservative ones. 

Minnesota employers know that the Minnesota Human Rights Act already prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, which includes  ” having or being perceived as having a self-image or identity not traditionally associated
with one’s biological maleness or femaleness.”   Minnesota is one of about 12 states to provide such protections, although a number of cities also do.
