When a staffer switches genders

May 14th, 2009  |  David Stephanides

>While most employers will likely never have to deal with a transgender worker, gender identity has become the latest battleground issue in employment discrimination law, which no employer can ignore, reports CNNMoney.com. Quoted in the article, Ramapo College law professor Jillian Weiss, who discusses these issues in her Transgender Workplace Diversity Blog, stresses workplace civility. It is not about trying to convince your workforce to endorse a transgender lifestyle, she said, but employers must create a work environment that is tolerant and respectful of all employees.
