Already under political assault for appointing an all-white cabinet, Gov. John Kasich raised hackles in Ohio’s gay community when he eliminated gender identity as a protected class for state workers.
Former Gov. Ted Strickland included gender identity in an executive order outlawing discrimination in state government hiring.
Kasich’s order preserves “sexual orientation” as a protected class.
When asked about the change, Kasich’s spokesman Scott Milburn stated, “The governor is opposed to discrimination in state employment and has made that clear in this executive order in the way that he feels is most appropriate.”
Critics charge the change leaves transgendered employees without protection.
