Transgender individuals report frequent encounters with transphobia in the workplace, although relatively few studies have investigated this phenomenon. The present grounded theory analysis was conducted with 45 transgender and gender diverse participants to delineate their different experiences with bias and discrimination in the workplace. Qualitative data analysis revealed the following themes pertaining to work transphobia: lack of social support, workplace gender policing, personal safety threats, acquisition and advancement barriers, intersectional discrimination, intuited stigma, and lack of inclusive policy. Results suggest the diverse challenges faced by transgender individuals in the workplace and the need for further interventions, supports, and policy to counteract work-related transphobia.
