Cadet Anti-Discrimination Act

Cadet Anti-Discrimination Act

Cadets in FFA and POST are not enumerated the same protections as most individuals in the State of Firestone when it comes to being subject to training programs by government agencies. This problem has been brought to attention by several POST graduates, and this Act intends to rectify these concerns.

§7. Clarifications

This Act serves to fill in the gap that the Fairer Employment Act (FEA) left in regard to POST/FFA cadets, where the FEA only covers departmental cadets. It is the belief that POST/FFA cadets should be entitled to the same rights and protections as departmental cadets.
