If you are an LGBT+ person in fear of losing your job at a Catholic institution, or you have already lost your job, you may wonder what legal recourse you have and how the law may or may not protect you. We are grateful to Lambda Legal for compiling a helpful guide for LGBT+ employees that covers the following topics:

What to do if you experience discrimination

What to do if you’re fired

The laws that protect you

Gender identity discrimination

HIV discrimination in the workplace

Your job search

Immigrant rights

Good company policies

How unions can help

Workplace resources

For employers
