Employment Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in Arkansas

  • Author(s): Mallory, Christy

  • et al.
Abstract

None of the approximately 47,000 LGBT workers in Arkansas are explicitly protected from discrimination under local, state or federal laws. If sexual orientation and gender identity were added to existing statewide non-discrimination laws, 22 more complaints would be filed in Arkansas each year. The cost of enforcing those complaints would be negligible, and would not require additional court or administrative staff.
