Transgender Rights: An Evolving Landscape


Partners Barbara Hoey and Mark Konkel authored the InsideCounsel article Transgender Rights: An Evolving Landscape.” The article outlines recent milestones and recommendations of what employers should know in order to foster a safe and legally compliant work space for LGBT employees. Specifically, the authors emphasize the importance of companies educating their managers and workers regarding the rights of LGBT employees. In addition, they should be aware that companies will not condone poor treatment of gay or lesbian employees, and that they must be sensitive to the needs of transgender employees.
