Employment Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in Alaska

About 13,100 LGBT workers in Alaska are not explicitly protected from discrimination under state or federal laws. Many corporate employers and public opinion in the state support protections for LGBT people in the workplace. If sexual orientation and gender identity were added to existing statewide non-discrimination laws, six more complaints would be filed in Alaska each year. The cost of enforcing those complaints would be negligible, and would not require additional court or administrative staff.
