Something to Think About

A non-discrimination statement (albeit a few years old now, but relevant nevertheless) from a very large employer, headquartered in the midwest:

All employment-related decisions are based on an individual’s job-related qualifications and job performance, without regard to race, age, color, religion, sex, national origin, veteran status or disability, and in certain states, marital status and sexual orientation.

My question: If all of the words up to and including “performance” actually constitute a wholly truthful description of the company’s future intentions and past actions re: the employment process, then (1) why are any words needed after “performance” and (2) how can any of it be honestly qualified by the “in certain states” proviso?

I’m now going to hop inside my fish and drive it to a job interview.
