Employment and sexual orientation

Stonewall - a professional lobbying group for lesbians, gay men and bisexuals - has produced a guide for employers who now have to deal with new employment legislation, which is to legally protect lesbian, gay and bisexual workers against discrimination and harassment at work. You can access the guide here. The Employment Equality (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2003 is the result of the UK’s implementation of the 2000 EU Employment Framework Directive requiring member states of the European Union to ban sexual orientation discrimination in employment by the end of 2003.
