OVERVIEW

Now that the Supreme Court has made decisions that there are civil rights violations when terminating or allegations of discrimination against the LBGTQ community in the workplace, Employers need to ensure they are establishing appropriate policies whether they are mandated by state to have gender equity protections or not.

Transgender Protections have impacted Employers in many states whether there are state regulations or not. In fact, many federal regulatory agencies include guidance, best practices and even focus on Transgender discrimination as high penalties if found out. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Department of Labor (DOL), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) all have Transgender Protection Components as part of their enforcement actions.

In addition to federal guidelines, there are specific state regulations that must be followed or fear high fines & penalties. Are you in a state or local workplace where these Transgender Protections exist? Not only are there regulations to follow, but there are also Labor Poster mandates, training requirements and Employee Handbook requirements that must be up dated to accommodate these Transgender requirements!
