Fortune 500 Companies and State Governments Are Leading the Way to Protect Rights of Transgender Employees

Posted by in Equal Employment Opportunity | Comments Off on Fortune 500 Companies and State Governments Are Leading the Way to Protect Rights of Transgender Employees

Various reports reveal that more than 40% of Fortune 500 companies and 12 states and the District of Columbia have responded to the call for more diversity and inclusion in the workplace by implementing policies that protect gender identity and/or gender expression.

The most progressive companies aren’t waiting for federal mandates on this issue, although no legislation has been passed or signed. Those employers that are affected by existing state laws (and many that aren’t), regarding the rights of transgenders, have instituted specific policies with strong language. They’ve added this topic to their non-discrimination training programs for employees to reduce or eliminate any potential for employment suits over this issue.

Your Employee Handbook, a complete personnel policy manual system, includes language covering these rights for their applicable states. See the “More” link below for additional information on this employee handbook system for small businesses.
