IL STATE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE : Illinois Set To Pass Bill Banning Small Businesses From Discriminating Against Lgbtq Workers
IL State Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Aug. 8.
A bill preventing small businesses in Illinois from discriminating against LGBTQ workers is one signature away from becoming law.
House Bill 4572 would update the Illinois Human Rights Act to fill a loophole in the law allowing businesses which employ less than 15 people to discriminate on the basis of characteristics like race, religion, national origin, military status, marital status, age, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
