LGBTQ workers at federal agencies attest to lack of support
LGBTQ employees at federal workplaces feel less respected than non-LGBTQ colleagues, according to a new study from the University of Michigan. Researchers found that LGBTQ workers are less satisfied with their pay, not as comfortable with whistle blowing and feel less supported in their attempts to balance work and life responsibilities. In addition, minority LGBTQ respondents reported less job satisfaction than white LGBTQ employees. The study was conducted by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management and included questions about employee treatment, workplace fairness and job satisfaction; 330,000 employees (11,000 of whom identified as LGBTQ) in 28 federal agencies with LGBTQ-inclusive policies participated. Because of their negative workplace experiences, the LGBTQ workers indicated they were more likely than their non-LGBTQ colleagues to seek work elsewhere in the next year, the study said.
