New York announces nation’s toughest transgender anti-discrimination law

Good news are coming from New York, here in NZ we are soon expecting something like what just happen crossing the ocean.

This could be possibly the most protective trans anti-discrimination law world wide.

A person or company can be fined if someone:

  • Intentionally failing to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun or title. For example, repeatedly calling a transgender woman ‘him’ or ‘Mr’ when she has made it clear that she prefers female pronouns and a female title.
  • Refusing to allow individuals to use single-sex facilities, such as bathrooms or locker rooms, and participate in single-sex programs, consistent with their gender identity. For example, barring a transgender woman from a women’s restroom out of concern that she will make others uncomfortable.
  • Enforcing dress codes, uniforms, and grooming standards that impose different requirements based on sex or gender. For example, enforcing a policy that requires men to wear ties or women to wear skirts.
  • Failing to providing employee health benefits that cover gender-affirming care or failing to provide reasonable accommodations for individuals undergoing gender transition, including medical appointments and recovery, where such reasonable accommodations are provided to other employees.

Way to go NEW YORK!….
