Discrimination Against LGBT People
Despite the progress gays and lesbians have made in the area of marital equality, they are not a protected group. This means that in places without statutory protections, discriminating against LGBT job searchers and workers is entirely permissible. The federal Employment Nondiscrimination Act of 2009, which would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity, has been stalled in Congress.
California, Illinois, New York, and New Jersey are among the roughly 20 states that prohibit LGBT discrimination in the workplace.
