One in four LGBT employees have reported discrimination at work in the past five years, and one in three are not out at work, according to a study released today by UCLA's Williams Institute.

Data for the study has been collected since 2005 and includes new data from the 2008 General Social Survey (GSS), a national probability survey representative of the U.S. population. Among the lesbian, gay, and bisexual respondents (transgender respondents were not mentioned), 42 percent said they'd experienced employment discrimination at some point in their lives. Twenty-seven percent experienced employment discrimination in the five years before the survey.

Not surprisingly, the survey also found that employees who were out at work were more likely to experience discrimination at the office.
