Document Abstract

Sexual harassment of LGBT people in the workplace

Examines the sexual harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people at work, drawing on the findings of a survey of LGBT people. Outlines the definition of sexual harassment, who is affected by it, what is known about LGBT people's experiences at work and the methodology used. Presents the research findings, indicating that around seven in ten LGBT workers experienced at least one type of sexual harassment, and highlighting the experiences of specific LGBT groups: women; bisexual; trans people; black and minority ethnic LGBT people; and disabled LGBT. Provides recommendations addressed to central government, regulatory bodies, employers and trade unions, including a stronger legal duty and sanctions on employers.
