The Civil Service Commission bans sex discrimination in virtually all federal jobs. According to the commission, sex can only be a factor in hiring when a job requires employees to sleep together in common areas or for particular institutional jobs, such as a guard in a women's prison.

Agencies are also no longer permitted to screen women from jobs where physical strength is a requirement. According to a commission spokesman: "After all, a buxom women can sometimes out-lift a small man."
