MOYA, Miguel  e  MOYA-GAROFANO, Alba. Discrimination, work stress, and psychological well-being in LGBTI workers in Spain. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2020, vol.29, n.2, pp.93-101.  Epub 11-Maio-2020. ISSN 2173-4712.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5093/pi2020a5.

Discrimination and prejudice against LGBTI people in Spain are much lower than they used to be; however, negative attitudes towards them may still persist. The purpose of this study was to analyze whether LGBTI individuals perceive the existence of prejudice or discrimination due to their sexual orientation in the workplace. To assess these perceptions in relative terms, we compared them with those of heterosexual individuals. We also analyzed whether perceived discrimination was associated with work stress, the presence of common mental disorders, and depression. Results revealed that LGBTI employees reported experiencing greater discrimination in the workplace because of their sexualorientation, which in turn led to a greater incidence of work stress, mental disorders, and depression. Our findings confirm that job discrimination against LGBTI people is still present, along with some of its harmful consequences, and highlight the need for interventions to reduce prejudice against LGBTI persons in the workplace.
