Protected classes. The Wyoming Fair Employment Practices Act prohibits employers from discrimination based on age (40 years or older), sex, race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, pregnancy, or disability (Wy. Stat. § 27-9-101 et seq.). The law applies to all public employers and to private employers with two or more employees.
Tobacco. The Wyoming Fair Employment Practices Act also prohibits discrimination based on the use or nonuse of tobacco products outside the course of a worker's employment, unless it is a bona fide occupational qualification (BFOQ) that a person not use tobacco outside the workplace (Wy. Stat. § 27-9-105).
