Dallas Voters Approve City Charter Amendment Prohibiting Discrimination Against City Employees according to Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation

Executive Summary: On November 4, 2014, voters in Dallas approved an amendment towards the City Charter to include nondiscrimination protections for Gay and lesbian city employees.

The charter amendment, referred to as Proposition 4, added “sexual orientation” and “gender identity and expression” in addition to color, age, marital status, genetic characteristics, national origin, disability, and military or veteran status towards the listing of groups protected against discrimination around town Charter. Formerly the town Charter prohibited discrimination against city employees based only on race, sex, and political or religious opinions or affiliation. The equal employment chance insurance policy for the town of Dallas already prohibited discrimination according to sexual orientation and gender identity and expression.

Using the amendment, Dallas joins a minimum of 200 metropolitan areas and counties through the U.S. which have laws and regulations prohibiting employment discrimination based on gender identity, based on the Human Legal rights Campaign (HRC). Furthermore, 18 states and also the District of Columbia have enacted laws and regulations prohibiting private and public employers from discriminating based on sexual orientation and gender identity, while three more states stop discrimination based on sexual orientation only. Captured, President Barack Obama signed a professional Order prohibiting federal contractors from discriminating based on gender identity and sexual orientation.
