MLS OKs gay player protections

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Major League Soccer has agreed to new measures to protect gay players from discrimination and harassment as a result of meetings with New York's attorney general.

The efforts are aimed at reinforcing the league's policies against discrimination. They include expanded training for players, a centralized complaint system and posting a code of conduct prohibiting discrimination in home and visitor locker rooms.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, whose office reached similar agreements with the National Football League and Major League Baseball, says workplace harassment and discrimination are illegal and won't be tolerated in major league sports.

MLS spokesman Dan Courtemanche confirmed the agreement announced by Schneiderman on Thursday in Manhattan.

The league has 600 players on 19 clubs, including three in Canada. It just began its 2014-15 season.
