The General Assembly has ended, the current status is the final status.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 19 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION BASED ON FAMILY RESPONSIBILITIES.
This bill prohibits discrimination in employment based upon an individual’s caregiving responsibilities. Workers should be judged on the merits of their performance at work, not their responsibilities at home. Five states and over 90 localities prohibit discrimination based on family responsibilities to some degree. This bill ensures Delaware workers with responsibilities for child care, elder care, or both, receive equal employment opportunities and are protected from discrimination in the workplace.
