On March 9, 2021 the Consume Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published an interpretative rule entitled Equal Credit Opportunity (Regulation B); Discrimination on the Bases of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity. The interpretative rule:
- Clarifies that, with respect to any aspect of a credit transaction, the prohibition against sex discrimination in the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) and Regulation B encompasses sexual orientation discrimination and gender identity discrimination, including discrimination based on actual or perceived nonconformity with sex-based or gender-based stereotypes and discrimination based on an applicant’s associations.
- Will be effective upon publication in the Federal Register.
