  • Status is not correct "There is no employment discrimination protection for the LGBT community in Colombia. Some could interpret the criminal clause that protect the general population will serve as labor discrimination but is not the case, someone can be charged with discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and this has no effect in the labor relation, the plaintiff can still lose his/her job "
