Discrimination

Florida Competitive Workforce Act (FCWA)

The Florida Competitive Workforce Act (FCWA) prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression in employment, housing and public accommodations. The FCWA would amend Ch. 760 of the Florida State Statues that currently prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex national origin, age, handicap, or marital status. 

The bill, in it's current form, was first introduced in 2009 by Representative Kelly Skidmore and Senator Ted Deutch. In 2010 the bill received it's first legislative workshop in the Senate Commerce Committee.
