The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would have allowed protection based on sexual orientation and gender identity, has been blocked by Congress.

There are so many important issues of equality facing the LGBTQ* community. Currently, the focus remains on the fight for marriage equality. Another important battle has been sitting in the background waiting to be pushed to the forefront: employment protections. According to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), only 16 states and DC have laws in place protecting workers from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Another five states have protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation, but not gender identity (“Statewide…”).

Exploring Gender: Equal Opportunity

Recently, the US Department of Labor announced it would consider gender identity and pregnancy to be protected statuses. Any discrimination based on these factors would be considered sex discrimination. This change extends equal opportunity protections to all genderqueer people working for or looking to be hired by the federal government.

During my research for this week, I found many articles relating back to recent posts, so this will be an update on many things: the trans* facilities policy at University of Pittsburgh, ENDA, how other colleges and universities are handling gender issues, trans* rights in Baltimore County, and the I AM: Trans People Speak Project.

Exploring Gender: Employment

ENDA

 

I found out this week that I get to keep my seasonal job. They moved me to part time.

I love this job for many reasons: I get to help people, answer questions, become more knowledgeable, and basically just have a job, which is always good.

One of my favorite things about this job though is the internal policy which bars discrimination of all kinds, including based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
