The Government are committed to combating workplace homophobia. The Employment Equality (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2003 made discrimination and harassment because of sexual orientation unlawful in employment and vocational training. The Government Equalities Office has made a commitment in its business plan for 2009-10 to work in partnership across Government to reduce homophobia in the workplace and to support employers to develop lesbian, gay and bisexual-friendly workplaces.
The Equality Bill, currently before Parliament, will introduces a public sector equality duty, which will require public bodies to consider lesbian, gay and bisexual employees' needs when carrying out their functions.
