The Trades Union Congress (TUC) conducted a research to better understand the experiences of LGBT+ workers across the UK (pdf), in July 2017. This research provides statistical evidence as well as the stories of LGBT+ workers to give voice to those experiences.
The report found that:
- Nearly two in five (39 per cent) of all respondents have been harassed or discriminated against by a colleague, a quarter (29 per cent) by a manager and around one in seven (14 per cent) by a client or patient.
- Only a third of respondents (34 per cent) reported the latest incident of harassment or discrimination to their employer, one in eight (12 per cent) reported it to HR.
- Almost half of trans people (48 per cent) have experienced bullying or harassment at work compared to just over a third (35 per cent) of non-trans respondents.
