Handbook Update: Personnel Policies for Transgender Employees


Bathroom access rights for transgender employees is a hot-button topic. On May 2, 2016, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) published guidance for employers.
In its guidance, the EEOC states that denying transgender employees the right to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
Employers should review their personnel policies to make sure they are in compliance with Title VII and the most recent EEOC guidance.
