Notes
  • This study relies on a field experiment to provide the first evidence on the relationship between women being lesbian and their hiring prospects in Greece. The data analyzed supports the findings of previous experiments, indicating that lesbians face hiring discrimination. The estimated probability of lesbian applicants receiving an invitation for an interview is 27.7 percentage points lower than that for heterosexual applicant. More importantly, entry wage differentials assigned are inconsistent with the ascendant empirical claims that lesbians have higher market earnings. The negative effect of lesbian sexual orientation is 6.1%. Given the legal actions in Greece that have the potential to affect sexual orientation minorities, it is important to understand the relationships between sexual orientation and labor market.
