A press release on February 12, 2017 on the best – and worst – countries in Europe to be an LGBT worker.
I am writing to you today to present our new study: “The Best European Countries for LGBT Workers.”
In our new study, Expert Market examines 43 European countries by reviewing various legal and social factors directly affecting the LGBT population (non-discrimination legislation and policies, workplace legislation, fair housing measures for LGBT, tolerance indices), as well as several job-related indicators (unemployment rate, monthly disposable income).
Our study highlights the following:
– For LGBT people, the best countries to work in are Norway, Finland, Belgium, Germany, and Sweden.
– Croatia comes in 11th place.
– Malta, the “LGBT paradise,” comes in 7th place. This is due to the lack of protection against LGBT housing discrimination and a lower-than-average monthly disposable income.
– The 5 countries LGBT should avoid are Armenia, Macedonia, Azerbaijan, Turkey and Russia.
