An exception is if a bona fide occupational qualification applies (please see WAC 162-16-240).
(b) Maintain, formally or informally, agency division titles that are not clearly neutral in terms of sex.
(2) It is not an unfair practice for an employment agency to assist an employer in recruiting applicants based on protected status when:
