Editor's message: The Equality Act 2010 protects people from discrimination if they have transitioned to live with a gender identity different to that assigned to them at birth, or if they are proposing to undergo such a transition. It is not necessary for a transgender person to have any kind of medical treatment to be protected under the Act.
Our content looks at how employers can create an inclusive workplace for all people who identify as transgender, not only those who are transitioning or have already done so.
