Abstract

Previous literature describes “coming out of the closet” as an important job career issue that is conducive to personal stress and job effectiveness in business firms. Previous research of human resources and organizational behavior has rarely assessed homosexual employees’ coming out and their job effectiveness. This study aims to complement previous research by proposing and testing a research model of job effectiveness of homosexual workers based on social cognitive theory. In the model, job effectiveness is indirectly affected by disclosure self-efficacy, disclosure outcome expectation, and social support via the mediation of disclosure, stress, and job advancement satisfaction. Empirical tests from a preliminary survey of 319 gay and lesbian adults in Taiwan are conducted herein, their results are presented, and managerial implications and limitations of this study are provided.
