Abstract

As the Equality Act seeks to explicitly prohibit discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in public and private settings (LGBTQ), it aims to protect LGBTQ groups employment. Before the introduction of the Equality Act, the legal system on equal employment in the United States mostly revolved around issues such as equal employment for men and women, equal pay for equal work, and the Equality Act legally recognized the right of LGBTQ groups to determine their gender according to their psychological gender. However, the application of an equal legal system presents a series of difficulties. In addition, there are still some deficiencies in the US equality legal system that need to be corrected, and the Equality Act cannot improve it. This paper, by reviewing literature and data, will analyze the above issues through the existing legal system of equality law in the United States and the Equality Act. The paper finds that the Equality Act has had a positive impact on equal employment for LGBT people, but does not remedy the shortcomings of the current equality law system.
