Kansas Governor Rescinds Executive Order That Had Prohibited Discrimination Against State Employees Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity

In an action that has drawn significant national media attention, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback issued an Executive Order rescinding an Executive Order signed eight years earlier by then Governor Sebelius, which had prohibited discrimination against state employees based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

Kansas had been among the more than 30 states affording such protection to LGBT state employees, and many private employers have implemented similar anti-discrimination policies for their employees.

Governor Brownback explained that where the state anti-discrimination statute (the Kansas Act Against Discrimination) did not prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity for private sector employees, he did not believe it appropriate to impose such prohibitions for public sector employees through executive action, rather than legislation.
