Course Overview

Gender identity discrimination has become a significant legal concern in today's workplaces. The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has deemed bias against employees due to their gender identity as illegal under sex discrimination laws. This training delves into the legal framework, covering federal and state protections, and emphasizes the importance of training in preventing harassment and discrimination related to gender identity.

Understanding the complexities of gender identity discrimination is crucial. Employees should be aware of what constitutes discrimination, including actions like denying restroom access based on gender identity, using incorrect pronouns hostilely, terminating employees due to gender identity, or subjecting transgender individuals to differential treatment. The training highlights these examples and the legal repercussions for non-compliance, including civil lawsuits and damage to reputation.

Effective prevention strategies are essential. Employers should create policies that ensure transgender employees' rights, including restroom usage and dress codes, incorporate gender identity education in compliance training, respect preferred pronouns, handle discrimination complaints seriously, and protect employee privacy regarding gender identity information.
