Tell Senators to repeal Tennessee's Workplace Discrimination Law

Last year, the Tennessee General Assembly enacted HB600/SB632 which repealed a Metro Nashville Ordinance which provided protection from job discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity for employees of government contractors. HB600 also prohibited other local governments from enacting similar workplace protections elsewhere in Tennessee.

Supporters of HB600 were told that enacting the law would promote business in Tennessee. But Tennessee Chamber of Commerce and Industry opposed the bill when it recognized the negative impact of the bill on business and commerce.

Local governments must be able to enact legislation that makes their communities more attractive to skilled workers and professionals and companies considering a move into the State of Tennessee. HB600/SB632 actually inhibits competition and has not been shown to promote economic growth in Tennessee.

Tell Senators to repeal Tennessee's Workplace Discrimination Law. Send a message to the Senate State and Local Government Committee to vote for SB2762!
