Collectif Arc-en-Ciel, an LGBTQ Group in Mauritius is aggressively pushing for protection for its members. It is also fighting for similar rights as its heterosexual counterparts in the workplace and issued an official statement saying: “We do awareness sessions within firms about the importance of equality in the workplace but there is one thing that we are coming up with which is business inclusion of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in workplaces to raise awareness within organizations,” explained Collectif Arc-en-Ciel’s Jean Danie. “Since 2008 we have an inclusive Workers’ Right Act so the law prohibits workers from being discriminated against based on their sexual orientation and the 2SLGBTQIA+ community has been included in that.”
