House Bill 316
148th General Assembly (2015 - 2016)
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 REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH DECISIONS.
This bill prohibits discrimination in employment based upon an individual’s reproductive health decisions. Delaware laws currently prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex or pregnancy; however, this legislation makes it clear that an employer is expressly prohibited from taking adverse employment action against an individual based on his or her reproductive health care decisions. This bill does not create any new obligations or change any existing obligations related to insurance coverage of reproductive health care. This bill seeks to ensure that all workers should be judged on their performance at work, as opposed to their personal reproductive health care decisions.
