A Broken Bargain: Discrimination, Fewer Benefits and More Taxes for LGBT Workers (Condensed Version)
June 2013 | Movement Advancement Project; Center for American Progress; Human Rights Campaign
“American workers who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) continue to face inequality, unfairness, harassment and discrimination in the workplace, and they often have nowhere to turn for help. No federal law provides explicit legal protections for LGBT workers, and fewer than half of states have laws that protect workers based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression.”
This condensed version of the full report examines the myriad injustices facing LGBT workers in the American workforce—and highlights how these injustices negatively impact both workers and employers. It outlines how LGBT employees who work just as hard as their non-LGBT counterparts face multiple barriers to fair and equal treatment.
