NY Attorney General Announces NFL Agreement
The National Football League is said to be cooperating with the New York State Attorney General’s Office to prevent discrimination based on sexual orientation.
According to a statement released by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, the league will reinforce policies against discrimination.
Schneiderman said the NFL will develop posters to be displayed in team locker rooms publicizing its anti-discrimination guidelines.
Schneiderman said discrimination and harassment won’t be tolerated in any form.
News reports indicated three prospective National Football League players were asked questions related to their sexual orientation during a February recruitment event.
The reports prompted the attorney general’s office to launch an inquiry regarding the assertions.
