>Workplace Prof blogger Jeffrey M. Hirsch has a new hypo for his employment law course, he notes, in the form of a company president who claims to have selected workers for layoff by walking through the company parking lot and finding employee cars whose bumpers have Obama stickers on them. “I can’t think of a more fair way to approach this problem,” the boss writes. “They voted for change, I gave it to them.”
>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.
