Lucas County bans bias based on sexual orientation

Lucas County commissioners yesterday unanimously approved an employment policy that forbids discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

The commissioners also passed a resolution supporting a bill being considered by the Ohio legislature that would broaden those protections statewide. Both resolutions were supported by Kim Welters, a program manager at Equality Ohio. She said Lucas County is now one of the few counties in Ohio with such a policy.

The resolution only affects workers employed by the county and does not affect the county s benefits policies.
