I could take this graphic and say that in these states you can be fired for being a straight white male and it would be the same argument.
I'd assume that in all of these states it's illegal to ask in an interview if the interviewee if a homosexual. It's not these states have some sort of open season on asking if their employees are gay and then firing them. I'm sure there have been people fired because of this, but I highly doubt that it's the norm.

Obviously if an employer wants to fire someone based off of religion, sexual orientation, race, or something else in that realm they can get away with it by masking the reasons. That sort of things surely happens and I know friends that have been fired based when others have done worse and still have their jobs.
I've been part of a layoff and that's basically where you stand... you just move on. That doesn't mean i think it's right for employers to fire people for reasons listed above, but it still doesn't mean it's legal for employers in the red highlighted states in the graphic legally can fire people for being gay.

In Canada you cannot even ask an Interviewee where they attended University, nor can you enquire to their cultural homeland, or their religion or sexuality.

You have to prove the discrimination, that is why these law firms are in business, to try to prove this. Are you not reading what you type.
If an employer does not require a reason to remove you from your job, then you may require answers, but none have to be given. I've lived here for 9 years, people are removed from their jobs daily for no reason.
Here is the Link. At-Will State is the status of Oregon. They still want employers to keep accurate performance records, but that is rare that it is ever used against them. The State favours the employer.
