Pennsylvania – Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Law and Documentation of Discrimination

Abstract

Pennsylvania has no statute that prohibits employment discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. There have been several attempts to amend the Human Relations Act to include prohibitions on sexual orientation and gender identity-based discrimination. To date, all have failed. There is currently an executive order that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression.
