Thinking Outside the Closet: The Cost of LGBT Exclusion

Thinking Outside the Closet: The Cost of LGBT Exclusion

How Discriminatory Immigration Laws Hurt Business:
A globally mobile workforce is today’s reality. Successful companies source talent from around the world and move people across borders to capitalize on market opportunities and develop next-generation leaders. These moves are often complicated and costly — they involve visa requirements, tax adjustments and tailored compensation and benefits packages. Companies nevertheless continue with cross-border hires and assignments because employees and business demand it and because they can usually surmount the hurdles imposed by a given jurisdiction. For LGBT employees and their families, on the other hand, global mobility is often more complicated, if not impossible. Some countries outlaw homosexual acts, in the worst cases punishable by death. In others, less deadly but inconvenient legal restrictions add additional cost. But while many developed nations have recognized the rights of LGBT couples, the United States lags behind, particularly in the area of immigration.
