Abstract [sv]

I denna rapport presenteras resultatet från ett fältexperiment vilket undersöker förekomsten av diskriminering av homosexuella i anställningssituationen. Vi finner att såväl homosexuella män som homosexuella kvinnor diskrimineras då de söker efter lediga anställningar. Omfattningen av diskrimineringen verkar dock vara mindre än vad som framkommit i tidigare studier. Diskrimineringen förekommer framförallt inom vissa yrkeskategorier som i vår studie är koncentrerade till den privata sektorn. Vidare framkommer en ny dimension av könsskillnaderna på arbetsmarknaden då resultaten visar att homosexuella män framförallt diskrimineras då de söker anställning i mansdominerade yrken medan homosexuella kvinnor diskrimineras då de söker anställning i kvinnodominerade yrken. Resultaten pekar således mot att homosexuella män i viss utsträckning möter liknande hinder på arbetsmarknaden som heterosexuella kvinnor.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents the first field experiment on sexual orientation discrimination in the hiring process in the Swedish labor market. Job applications were sent to about 4,000 employers in 10 different occupations in Sweden. Gender and sexual orientation were randomly assigned to applications. The results show that sexual orientation discrimination exists in the Swedish labor market. The discrimination against gays and lesbian varies across different occupations and appears only in the private sector. The results also seem to suggest a new dimension of traditional gender roles; the gay applicant was discriminated against in typical male-dominated occupations whereas the lesbian applicant was discriminated against in typical female-dominated occupations. Thus, the results suggest that gays to some extent face the same obstacles on the labor market as heterosexual women.
