Idaho Government Contractors: What you need to know

The Idaho Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination by any employer who as contractor or subcontractor furnishes material or performs work for the state on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability (ID Code. Sec. 67-5901et seq.). The law applies to all government contractors and subcontractors.

The Idaho Human Rights Commission enforces the Human Rights Act. The Commission has the authority to initiate, receive, and investigate discrimination complaints, issue subpoenas, hold hearings, issue administrative decisions and orders, and enforce its orders in state court. A person alleging discrimination may also file a private lawsuit in state court. Remedies can include cease and desist orders, hiring, reinstatement and promotion, back pay, benefits, and punitive damages.
Note: One of the stated purposes of Idaho's Human Rights Act is to be as consistent as possible with federal laws on discrimination such as the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), as amended. Therefore, employers can expect that questions will be resolved by the Human Rights Commission in reliance on the federal guidelines set by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) for federal civil rights claims.
