Frequently Asked Questions About Sexual Harassment of Transgender and Non-Binary Individuals in the Workplace

Harassment based on gender identity or expression is a form of sexual harassment. Regardless of the genders of the people involved, it is never appropriate for someone in the workplace to harass another person because of their gender identity or expression.

When harassment happens at work, it is never your fault—you are not responsible for someone else’s behavior and it isn’t your responsibility to make it stop. Your employer, on the other hand, is responsible for keeping your workplace safe. If you believe that you have experienced or are currently experiencing workplace sexual harassment because of your gender identity or expression, it is your right to demand that your employer make it stop.
