Sylvester solicits frank conversation on homosexuality in the workplace

The 'second coming out', where employees are open about their homosexuality, is an opportunity to allow employees to flourish.

Marketing maverick, Sylvester Chauke, who is the Friday stand-in for 702/Cape Talk's Redi Tlhabi, speaks to Nina Benjamin from Labour Research Services about the issue.

Listen to the conversation below:

In the Bill of Rights, there's a clear indication on no discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

Nina Benjamin, Labour Research Services

When we're speaking of homophobia, we're speaking of a fear. People seem to fear what they don't know or what they don't understand.

Nina Benjamin, Labour Research Services

When you're feeling discriminated against, your sense of security and self-esteem is being undermined. It's also difficult to put up a case...It's also difficult to prove.

Nina Benjamin, Labour Research Services

There's nothing that makes a lesbian worker for instance feel like anyone is there to protect them.
