U.S. Department of Labor (USA)

The U.S. Labor Department issued a Final Rule to protect employees of federal contractors from discrimination based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. The rule would carry out terms of a workplace anti-discrimination executive order signed by President Barack Obama on July 21. The final rule will become effective 120 days after its publication in the Federal Register and will apply to workers of all federal contractors from that date forward.
