Employment Non-Discrimination Act [ENDA] Law and Legal Definition

Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) is a proposed federal legislation that would provide basic protections against workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

The bill is closely modeled on existing civil rights laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The ENDA prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation in all aspects of employment, including hiring, firing, promotion, compensation, and most terms and conditions of employment.
