How Employers Should Deal With Transgender Employees

Failing to properly deal with issues of gender identity and gender expression may lead to costly employee claims.

Below are tips and suggested best practices for employers to ensure a workplace free from discrimination and harassment for all employees:

Establish Standards for All
Implement reasonable workplace appearance and dress standards that allow employees to appear or dress consistently with their gender identity and gender expression.

Establish Procedures
Implement procedures for gender transitions that clearly delineate responsibilities and expectations of transitioning employees, their supervisors, and other staff.

Maintain Privacy
Ensure the privacy of gender-transitioning employees.

Establish Policies
Make tolerance part of the workplace culture by having strong anti-discrimination provisions in personnel policies.

Ensure employees know harassment and discrimination based on sex, gender, sexual orientation and gender identity will not be tolerated.

Implement Changes
Address Employees by their preferred name and/or preferred title and pronoun by all persons in the workplace.
