Representative Dan Daley (D-Coral Springs) and Senator Janet Cruz (D-Tampa) have filed House Bill 853, and Senate Bill 550, Unlawful Employment Practices. This legislation prohibits discriminating against active duty military spouses during application and selection for employment opportunities, bolstering the ability of active duty military spouses to join the Florida workforce.
“Alongside the courageous military members who serve our country- are their spouses. These men and women give up precious time with their loved ones and are often forced to relocate, leaving behind jobs they love and struggle to find new employment,” saidRepresentative Dan Daley. “With 21 military bases in Florida, this legislation will prevent discrimination of military spouses in obtaining employment while serving in this great state.”
“I am proud to sponsor this bill to prohibit discrimination against active duty military spouses during the hiring process. These men and women face a multitude of barriers to entering the workforce and we should do everything we can to support them as they seek employment in Florida,” said Senator Janet Cruz.
