There are a number of federal and state statutes and laws that all Idaho Employers must understand and follow.

Additionally, these laws create an obligation for all Employers in Idaho to protect employees from all forms of bullying, harassment, and discrimination. Further, federal and state and even some local laws seem to involve an ever changing landscape of requirements concerning the rights of gender choice and gender identity.
