The Gay and Lesbian Equality Network (GLEN) studied LGBT people of Ireland at work and observed that 30% of them are there harassed.

The report indicates that one in ten people quit their job because of discrimination suffered at work, but at the same time, the report highlights the need for LGBT people to be out at work. GLEN shows that an out person is often accepted and works in good conditions as opposed to a person who does not come out.

The group will also set up an index system, the Workplace Equality Index, to find great companies for LGBT people and push all to better accept their LGBT employees and colleagues.

Davin Roche, Director of Workplace Diversity, said: ¬ęThe Workplace Equality Index will push top performing employers in Ireland to new heights. The Index will also provide a framework for employers tackling issues like harassment and homophobic bullying in the workplace.
