*As a result of a 2012 Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) ruling, the federal sex discrimination law, Title VII, now protects employees nationwide from discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression. By contrast, this list reflects state and local laws and ordinances that explicitly protect workers from discrimination based on their gender identity.

NOTE: Only jurisdictions with ordinances that prohibit discrimination in private employment are listed. Other localities may have executive orders that apply to government employees and these are not listed. The level of enforcement of these ordinances may vary by jurisdiction. This information is constantly changing, and we welcome suggestions for additions or changes. Email us here. This data was collected in collaboration with the Equality Federation and Equality Pennsylvania.
