Delaware realtor Daniel Hines, who had been working as a home inspector for the city for two years, decided to leave the job in the middle of a hiring season to become a full-time gender non-conforming realtor.

When he was told by his supervisor that he could not be fired because of his gender, Hines said he was so shocked that he decided to do so.

He said he found the decision distasteful and that it was the first time he had ever considered the possibility of being fired based on his gender identity.

“I felt I had to speak up,” Hines told The American Conservatives.

“When you are the person who is supposed to protect and serve the community, it is important to stand up for yourself and speak up.”

The Delaware Department of Labor and Industry issued a statement to The American Citizen last week, saying: Delaware’s gender neutral employment policy, effective in January 2018, prohibits discrimination based on a person’s gender identity in the hiring process and employment decisions.

Discrimination against a person based on gender identity is prohibited under the state law.

Employers can also refuse to hire, promote, or otherwise reward an employee based on their gender identity, including when such actions violate a person or employer’s code of conduct.

“We’re very pleased with the new policy, which reflects a commitment to diversity, inclusion, and inclusion of all Delawareans,” said Del.

Sarah Hagan, a spokeswoman for the Department of Employment and Economic Development, in a statement.

“Delaware’s workplace and hiring policies are inclusive of people of all genders and sexual orientations.

Our goal is to create a safe and welcoming environment for all Delawares employees, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity.”

“It’s important to note that discrimination based in any form will be prosecuted under Delaware law,” the department added.

Hines has filed a discrimination complaint with the state.

In the meantime, the town of Westland is planning to move forward with its own gender-neutral hiring policy.

“It was a decision we made together and we’re very happy about that,” Hanes said.

“You have to be supportive of other people’s experiences and take it all in.”

“There are going to be people out there who are going be upset about that, but that’s the nature of human nature,” Hins said.

He added that he has not been in touch with the police department in the past couple weeks to discuss his concerns.

He hopes the town’s new policy will lead to an increase in the number of people who are able to be hired in the area, but it may not be a panacea.

“If we’re going to have an increase, we have to start somewhere,” he said.
