It is not as easy as just passing a law

The TUC recently launched a major new survey into how lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) people find working life in the UK.  Despite changes in the law that should have brought an end to discrimination & prejudice, the TUC is concerned that LGBT people are still experiencing difficulties at work:

As a result the TUC wants to carry out a thorough investigation into the experiences of LGBT people at work, and will use the findings to:

  • Campaign on the issues most affecting LGBT people in the UK right now.
  • Produce training material for union reps to ensure they can best protect and represent their members.
  • Help employers create a more inclusive work environment – including training for staff, getting the correct policies in place to prevent discrimination, and supporting LGBT staff if things go wrong.
The deadline to complete the TUC survey is Friday 5 May 2017.
