The State of Idaho has no affirmative action requirements for private employers. The Idaho Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or disability (ID Code Sec. 67-5901et seq.). The law applies to all public employers and private employers with five or more employees. Through an executive order issued by Idaho's governor, the state established affirmative action requirements for state employers that includes an employment preference for veterans and disabled persons (ID Exec. Order 2004-05). There is additional information about federal requirements.
