Workplace Protections for LGBT Workers
Workplace discrimination for LGBT employees is complex and continuously changing.
Presently, there are no explicit protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees in the workplace under federal law. However, such individuals may still be able to make a claim under a different category that is protected.
