More information

Section D: Employment Data (ethnic and racial categories). This allows employers to report peoples of 'two or more races, Asian, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander, Black or African American, Hispanic or Latino,' and encourages self-identification rather than reporting by employers. In 2011, “sex-stereotyping” was added as a form of sex discrimination and included lesbian, gay, bisexual individuals. Transgender and gender identity was included in 2012.
