Tips for LGBTQ Job Seekers
In a landmark decision in 2020, the Supreme Court stated that employees that belong to the LGBTQ community are covered by the Civil Rights Act of 1964
Our society has made significant progress in fighting for the rights of the LGBTQ community. Openness and acceptance have been on the rise, and most citizens are already aware of their rights that everyone in the community must recognize. Private and public institutions put in place measures to ensure that they are protected and that everyone complies.
An ever-growing number of companies are also hiring members from the LGBTQ community and providing safe spaces and working environments. Despite this, however, a certain percentage of the community still suffers from discrimination. Some are still not aware of their rights, and others continuously discriminate against them.
Therefore, members of the LGBTQ community must be continuously educated about LGBTQ rights so that no one will be left behind.
