Lambda Legal
releases workplace study

National gay rights group Lambda Legal on Wednesday released one of the largest-ever national surveys of workplace issues for LGBT people. More than 1,200 people responded to the survey, conducted last fall through an invitation to Lambda Legal's online membership. In the study more than half of the respondents said that "gay-friendly" policies are "critical" to their decision about where to work, and almost three quarters said they are "out" at their workplace. But 39% of those surveyed said they had experienced antigay discrimination or harassment. And one in five reported that their sexual orientation is a barrier to promotion. In a statement, Lambda director Kevin Cathcart said, "This is a wake-up call for employers around the country--without commitments to fairness and equality for all employees, they risk losing talented employees and job candidates." Currently, only 18 states have employment discrimination laws that protect gays and lesbians. (Sirius OutQ News)
