Although transgender employees are already protected by the Fair Employment and Housing Act, new regulations effective July 1 clarify the scope of the protection, including working conditions and recording of employee gender and name. The regulations recognize protection for employees in the process of transitioning between genders and the need for “safe and adequate” locker rooms and dressing rooms (in addition to restrooms), and they require “gender neutral” signage on single-occupancy restrooms. Further, employers may be liable for violating FEHA if they fail to use an employee’s preferred gender, name and/or pronoun. Employers should ensure that managers and supervisors are aware of these requirements to avoid inadvertent violations.
