Gender Identity and Expression
Nevada has strict laws that protect individuals against employment discrimination on the basis of gender identity or expression. Gender identity is a person’s internal sense of being male or female, or not identifying with a gender at all. Gender expression includes physical attributes an individual exhibits, such as appearance, dress, hair, mannerisms and behaviors.
Nevada has enacted statutes that prohibit discrimination in areas of employment, as well as housing and public accommodations, on the basis of “gender identity or expression.”
