GAO Report on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Employment Discrimination

GAO

The Government Accountability Office has issued a Report on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Employment Discrimination: Overview of State Statutes and Complaint Data, GAO-10-135R.  The report (1) reviews state statutes that prohibit discrimination in employment on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, including the characteristics, coverage, and exclusions of the laws, and (2) gathers information concerning the number of administrative employment discrimination complaints filed in each state -- both the total number and the number of complaints listing sexual orientation or gender identity as one of the claimed bases for discrimination.

The Report concludes that the administrative complaint data reported by states show relatively few employment discrimination complaints based on sexual orientation and gender identity.  However, in some states, the laws proscribing sexual orientation and gender identity employment discrimination were enacted relatively recently, and data was incomplete.
