Based on the reports on employment law and discrimination related to sexual orientation and gender identity for each of the 50 states (See Appendices), this chapter compiles more than 380 specific examples of workplace discrimination against state and local employees, almost all occurring within the last 20 years, and none occurring prior to 1980. The state reports collected examples of discrimination from court opinions, administrative complaints, academic journals, books, newspapers, and publications by and complaints made to community-based organizations.
