The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will add a nonbinary option for people filing discrimination charges, the agency announced.

Currently, when a worker files a charge with the EEOC, the only two gender options they can choose are male or female. People who are nonbinary don’t identify as male or female. The EEOC will add an “X” option for their intake and charge filing process, the agency said Thursday.
