Más de una de cada cuatro personas transgénero ha perdido un trabajo debido a un sesgo, y más de tres cuartos han experimentado algún tipo de discriminación en el lugar de trabajo. La negativa a contratar, las violaciones a la privacidad, el acoso e incluso la violencia física y sexual en el trabajo son situaciones comunes, y son experimentadas a tasas aún más altas por personas transgénero de color. Muchas personas reportan cambios de trabajo para evitar la discriminación o el riesgo de discriminación. Los niveles extremos de desempleo y pobreza llevan a uno de cada ocho a involucrarse en economías clandestinas, como el trabajo con el sexo y las drogas, para sobrevivir.

The landmark Supreme Court case Bostock v. Clayton County, decided on June 15, 2020, clarified that federal law prohibits anti-transgender discrimination in employment. This decision was built on many victories in recent years, wherein courts and federal agencies had increasingly taken the view that job discrimination against transgender people is prohibited by existing laws against sex discrimination. This inclusive understanding of sex discrimination laws, accepted by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 2012, has the potential to be a powerful tool to combat employment bias. The EEOC has now investigated and settled many cases on behalf of transgender workers and has identified LGBTQ workers’ rights as an enforcement priority. We strongly urge workers facing discrimination to use these protections and seek legal help.
