Research Supports Workplace Protections

Post submitted by Brian Moulton, Former HRC Legal Director

Today HRC, together with the Center for American Progress and the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law, released a document compiling the comprehensive research and analysis by a number of LGBT organizations in support of federal workplace nondiscrimination protections, including an executive order barring discrimination by federal contractors and the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.    This database includes hundreds of pages of research from the ACLU, the Center for American Progress, HRC, the National Center for Transgender Equality, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Freedom To Work, and the Williams Institute. 

Together, these documents make a compelling case for action by the President and Congress to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans from workplace discrimination.  They detail the breadth of discrimination facing LGBT people, the leadership by corporate American in creating welcoming workplaces and the strong support of the American people for employment protections.  HRC will continue to work with our colleague organizations to use this tremendous wealth of supportive research to push for federal protections for LGBT workers.
