The Workplace Impact of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), Which Makes It Way to the House after Strongly Passing the Senate

lu_hwe_logo.jpgOn November 7, 2013, by a vote of 64-32, the Senate voted to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) for the first time since the legislation was introduced nearly twenty (20) years ago. The House of Representatives has yet to vote on the bill and Speaker John Boehner has voiced his opposition to the Bill, but there is significant bipartisan pressure to bring the bill to a vote on the House floor. ENDA, if enacted, will provide protection against workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Currently, individuals who identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) are not covered under the presently existing civil rights laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), or Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA).
