Gender reassignment discrimination

Laura Merrylees Editor's message: Protection against discrimination on the grounds of gender reassignment is one of a suite of protections at the core of the Equality Act 2010 and is a well-established right. However, merely taking steps to prevent any acts of discrimination does not, of itself, promote your organisation as one which is inclusive.

Your organisation could benefit in a number of ways by establishing itself as a trans-friendly workplace, including in its recruitment processes, staff networks and senior-level commitment. All of these steps will help to cultivate a culture where transgender people are supported throughout the employment cycle.
