On May 2nd, the President signed an Executive Order to bar discrimination against parents in the federal workplace. This Executive Order would bar discrimination against parents in all aspects of employment, including recruitment, referral, hiring, promotions, discharge, and training. The Order would also prohibit employers in the Executive Branch from acting on assumptions that parents, or those with parental responsibilities, cannot satisfy the requirements of a particular position. The Order would not interfere with an employer's ability to select workers; it would simply ensure that workers are not discriminated against simply because they are parents.
