LGBTQ employees likely to witness or experience discrimination

A survey by Glassdoor found that 53 percent of employees who are LGBTQ have witnessed or experienced anti-LGBTQ statements by people they work with. For employees in Massachusetts, such behavior could rise to the level of actionable discrimination. Around 30 percent of non-LGBTQ employees said they had witnessed the same sort of statements. According to a group leader with Glassdoor, 26 states do not have protections on the books for LGBTQ workers. Many employees believe coming out to employers and co-workers could negatively impact their careers.

Goldman Sachs sued over alleged LGBT discrimination

Many LGBT employees in Massachusetts continue to struggle with discrimination in the workplace even after they have reached a significant amount of career success. This is underlined in a lawsuit by a former Goldman Sachs vice president who is suing the Wall Street bank for workplace discrimination. He says that he was fired from his job in retaliation for complaining about discriminatory behavior aimed at him because of his sexual orientation. The openly gay banker was part of the company's LGBT network before his dismissal.
