Colorado to Ban "Fatphobia" in Workplace and Housing, Leading the Charge Against Weight Discrimination
In a groundbreaking move, Colorado is poised to become the first US state to explicitly ban "fatphobia" in the workplace and housing. This legislation aims to prevent discrimination against individuals based on their weight and ensure equal opportunities for all.
The bill, currently under consideration by the state legislature, is expected to pass and become law in 2024. It would prohibit:
- Landlords from denying rentals based on weight limits.
- Employers from discriminating against overweight or obese employees. . .
