A new Employment Non-Discrimination Act (“ENDA”) bill has recently been introduced in Congress. ENDA, if enacted, would prohibit job discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Currently, with a very few exceptions (e.g., where an employee has a written contract for a set term or works for a large corporation with its own corporate nondiscrimination protections), LGBT employees in Virginia can be fired at will purely because of their sexual orientation. And it is perfectly legal. Given the inability to pass even watered down legislation in the recently ended session of the Virginia General Assembly that would have afforded protections to state employees only – bills were killed in committee in the Republican controlled House of Delegates - many LGBT Virginians see federal legislation as the last best hope for any type of employment protections. Sadly, the prognosis for passage of ENDA is viewed by many as not good given the Republican control of the House of Representatives.
