Employers in York County may soon have to deal with a new anti-discrimination agency that would investigate complaints and run programs to eliminate discrimination.
The county commissioners may also add sexual orientation discrimination to the list of complaints that the proposed agency could hear. Currently, state law doesn't include sexual orientation discrimination, although the city of York does.
The city already has an HR commission, but it can investigate only discrimination that occurs within city limits. Supporters claim York County needs its own agency because the county has the second highest rate of job discrimination in Pennsylvania.
More than 600 employees in York County filed complaints against their employers over the last five years, but had to travel to Harrisburg to do so.
