Research related to the experiences of sexual minorities in the workplace has been limited. This research examines organizational climate and perceived discrimination and their impact on work-related outcomes such as job satisfaction, turnover intentions, organizational commitment, career satisfaction, and job stress. Three hundred and forty-six people responded to a web-based survey. The results indicated that organizational climate and perceived discrimination was predictive of job satisfaction, turnover intentions, organizational commitment, and career satisfaction while perceived discrimination was also predictive of stress of on the job. The impact of sexual identity development and sexual identity management strategies used on the job were also explored in relation to these variables. Limitations and future research were also discussed.
