FAQ: The Employment Non-Discrimination Act

americanprogress.org – By Seth Althauser, Sarah Greenberg

The Center for American Progress has shown that gay and transgender individuals face alarmingly high rates of employment discrimination. The recently introduced Employment Non-Discrimination Act, or ENDA, would outlaw employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. ENDA, if passed, would ensure gay and transgender employees are judged on the quality of their work and not on personal characteristics irrelevant to job performance such as sexual orientation and gender identity.
