The concerning new figures question whether enough is being done to tackle workplace discrimination.

New research has found that one in 10 LGBT+ employees have experienced bullying in their place of work because of their sexuality.

The study – conducted by job site CV-Library – found that out of 1,200 British workers, 11.7% had been bullied for identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

That percentage climbs to 15.4% of employees who revealed that they had witnessed a colleague dealing with prejudice and discrimination based on their sexuality.
