August 13, 2009 - by: HR Hero 0 COMMENTS

Delaware Governor Jack Markell has signed an executive order that broadens the scope of discrimination protection in state government workplaces. Specifically, the order prohibits discrimination based on gender identity or expression and extends discrimination protection to all military veterans (instead of just Vietnam War veterans).

While discussing the executive order and his administration’s commitment to equality, Markell noted, “Discrimination in any form is wrong, and I will not stand for it as governor.” He further added, “I am proud to issue this executive order. It sends a clear signal that Delaware’s state government does not tolerate discrimination and is serious about fostering an inclusive working environment. Delaware’s state government must reflect the rich diversity of the citizens it serves.”
