Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Discrimination in Employment
A Legal Analysis of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA)
This document discusses the implications of the proposed US Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which would prohibit employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. The stated purpose of the legislation is “to address the history and widespread pattern of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity by private sector employers and local, State, and Federal Government employers,” as well as to provide effective remedies for such discrimination.
