This issue brief for the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy discusses the current gap in federal and state legal protections on discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. It then considers ENDA, explains its provisions, and assesses its ability to safeguard LGBT workers from bias. ENDA, it concludes, is a modest and pragmatic step toward ensuring that LGBT employees are judged fairly on the basis of their job performance, without regard to their sexual orientation or gender identity.
