Executive Order 11478

Executive Order 11478

Executive Order 11478 was signed by President of the United States Richard M. Nixon on August 8, 1969, prohibiting discrimination on certain grounds in the competitive service of the federal civilian workforce, including the United States Postal Service and civilian employees of the United States Armed Forces. The order was amended and more protected classes were added in 1978 by Executive Order 12106, in 1998 by Executive Order 13087 (sexual orientation), and in 2000 by Executive Order 13152 (parental status).

As amended by Executive Order 12106, section 1 of the order now reads: [http://www.dol.gov/oasam/regs/statutes/EO11478.htm Current text (Dec. 2006) of Executive Order 11478 from the U.S. Department of Labor ]

It is the policy of the Government of the United States to provide equal opportunity in Federal employment for all persons, to prohibit discrimination in employment because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, handicap, age, sexual orientation, or status as a parent and to promote the full realization of equal employment opportunity through a continuing affirmative program in each executive department and agency. This policy of equal opportunity applies to and must be an integral part of every aspect of personnel policy and practice in the employment, development, advancement, and treatment of civilian employees of the Federal Government, to the extent permitted by law.
