HB 665: Relating to prohibition of employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.

Primary Author: Rep. Mike Villarreal (D-San Antonio)

Joint Author: None

Equality Texas has worked with Rep. Villarreal's office for the last three legislative sessions to draft language which would prohibit discrimination in employment based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. HB 665 would incorporate sexual orientation and gender identity/expression into all existing labor code sections dealing with nondiscrimination, treating them equally with race, color, disability, religion, sex, national origin, or age.
