Gender Diversity in Employment and Occupation

Requirements and guidelines to implement anti-discrimination policies for employers

- Fact sheet on the research project -

The current national and international state of research on the discrimination of inter*, trans* and non-binary-persons illustrates that structural discriminations still pervade all areas of society and adversely affect the life situation and health of gender-diverse persons.

In employment and occupation, too, disadvantages as a result of binary norms occur in all phases and aspects of gender-diverse persons’ working life. However, the current legal framework conditions underscore that employers are already now required to implement anti -discrimination policies for the benefit of gender-diverse staff.
