The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) will protect workers from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. ENDA will ensure employees are judged on the quality of their work and not on personal identity, which is irrelevant to job performance. It embodies the American philosophy that employment decisions should be centered on a person’s qualifications and work ethic, rather than their perceived differences. NASW strongly urges the House of Representatives to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.
NASW asks members to advocate for Congress to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act so that all workers are protected from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.Tags: Advocacy, ENDA, glbt, lgbt, transgender, workplace
