Re: “Hundreds Across the State Rally Lawmakers to Add the Words

Because Idaho is a 'right to work' state, it is legal to fire someone for any reason. Because of the Idaho Human Rights Act, you cannot fire a person on the basis of race, religion, gender, ethnic origin, or disability. You also cannot refuse to HIRE a qualified candidate based on the previously mentioned criteria. It is still legal to refuse to hire a person or to fire someone because of their sexual orientation (which includes a person who is gay, straight, lesbian or bi-sexual) and their gender identity because these two groups are not included in the Idaho Human Rights Act. Amending that piece of legislation protects all Idahoans. As the laws are currently written, you can be also be refused a job or be fired for being straight, which seems just as silly as being fired because you are a man who wants to wear a dress or a female who wants to cut her hair short as this falls into the very large spectrum of gender identity.
This amendment would also protect workers from having to worry that their family photo on their desk may get them fired, or talking about what they did with their family over the weekend. It would also bring corporations into Idaho that have more LGBT friendly employment policies because the state laws would be in line with their private policies, making human resource needs less expensive. Bottom line, corporations moving into Idaho means more jobs for all Idahoans.
We should consider the overall picture of proposed legislation and how it can help our entire community, rather than getting stuck on a possible perceived "ick" factor. This legislation would not give an advantage to gay or transgender individuals when looking for a job, it only makes the field more equal for them and other candidates.
