Employment Discrimination Against LGBT

Author: The Williams Institute
Published: Thursday 13th November 2014 - Updated: Friday 23rd January 2015
Summary: Surveys, polls and wage data indicate that employment discrimination against LGBT people is persistent and pervasive.


Research further indicates that enforcement of anti-discrimination protections is not overly burdensome and business generally support non-discrimination policies.

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would protect against sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination, now awaits consideration in the U.S. House of Representatives. Williams Institute research released earlier this week shows that a majority of Americans in every congressional district supports laws that protect against sexual orientation discrimination.
