Yes, there are laws that protect LGBTQ+ individuals from workplace harassment. In the U.S., for instance, the Supreme Court ruled in 2020 that the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits sex discrimination, applies to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. This means that employers cannot discriminate or harass employees based on their LGBTQ+ status. Many states and local jurisdictions also have their own laws offering additional protections.
