In an election-year nod to his liberal base, President Obama will sign an executive order Monday prohibiting discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees working for federal contractors and the federal government.
White House officials said Friday that Mr. Obama plans to amend existing executive orders barring discrimination against workers to include protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. The president ordered his staff to begin drafting the order several weeks ago.
But the order won’t repeal President George W. Bush’s amendment allowing religious-affiliated federal contractors to discriminate on the basis of religion, senior administration officials said.
