Poster-updating costs alone would reach into the millions.
The Department of Labor has proposed a rule that would remove the words “he” and “she” from an anti-discrimination regulation in order to “avoid the gender binary” — which is obviously something that must be avoided at all costs.
The rule replaces “‘he or she’ with ‘the individual,’ ‘person,’ or other appropriate identifier,” according to the document’s text.
(So — wait — does that mean “he” and “she” are inappropriate identifiers?)
It also updates the list of things that count as banned discrimination under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act to include “sex stereotyping, transgender status, and gender identity.”
