The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) is a piece of legislation that makes it illegal to fire or not hire someone on the basis of being gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. It has passed in several liberal states. In evil conservative states, it is legal to arbitrarily fire or not hire someone on the petty basis of being LGBT.
This law has fully passed in 16 states, along with Washington, D. C. In 5 states, gays, lesbians, and bisexuals are protected, but transgendered people are not. In 29 states, it has not passed.
