Does your organization include "gender identity" in its non-discrimination policy?

Can you ensure your workplace policies and practices don’t discriminate against transgender employees on the basis of sex or gender identity under Title VII?

When an employees’ gender identity or gender expression doesn’t conform to the sex they were assigned at birth, or an employee transitions to another gender, employers face many challenging questions about dress codes, restrooms, proper language, discrimination, bullying and more.

If you’re unprepared, answer—or act—in a discriminatory manner you’re likely to face not only employee relations issues but lengthy (and costly) litigation and damages.
