Equal Employment is the Law
The Idaho Department of Labor has updated the Equal Opportunity Is the Law notice. Pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions, sex stereotyping, transgender status, gender identity, and those with limited English proficiency have been added as protected classes under the law. Additionally, recipients of federal financial assistance must take reasonable steps to ensure that communication with individuals with disabilities is as effective as communication with others. Recipients are required to provide appropriate auxiliary aids and services to individuals with disabilities. Lastly, Amy Hohnstein is the new WIOA Equal Opportunity Officer. Contact information to file a complaint has been updated along with the notice’s revision date (12/2016).
