Employment Discrimination against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People in Oklahoma
By Christy Mallory, Jody L. Herman, M.V. Lee Badgett
This report analyzes evidence of employment discrimination against LGBT people in Oklahoma, and asses the impact of adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the state’s non-discrimination law. We find that LGBT people in Oklahoma face discrimination in the workplace, including lower wages. Evidence also shows that a sexual orientation and gender identity non-discrimination law may have a positive impact on businesses in the state, and will not overwhelm state enforcement agencies or courts.
