DFW Airport Adds TBLG Non Discrimination Protections

Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world and the jointly owned facility is considered the gateway to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

That airport got a little more friendly to its TBLG employees earlier this month.

Since the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth both have TBLG non-discrimination laws on the books, the DFW airport adopted non-discriminations and harassment policies protecting its 1700 employees from discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation and gender identity that took effect November 1.

Resource Center Dallas strategic communications and programs manager Rafael McDonnell told the Dallas Voice  that RCD representatives first approached DFW International Airport officials several months ago.

The sexual orientation and gender identity language was added to the airport’s nondiscrimination and anti-harassment policies by executive order and didn’t require approval from the DFW Airport board.
