Transgender Rights Workshop

The hottest topic of the year and how it relates to your employees & patrons can also be the most confusing . Illinois is one of about one-third of the states which has passed legislation prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity, but few courts have interpreted how to enforce these laws, leaving employers and local governments to speculate. This workshop will answer questions such as who has superior rights and what to do if a patron is uncomfortable in the restroom or changing area.

The hottest topic of the year is also the most confusing for some park districts - transgender rights - and how this relates to your employees and patrons. Illinois is one of about one-third of the states which has passed legislation prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity, but few courts have interpreted how to enforce these laws, leaving employers and local governments to speculate about such topics as:

  • What does the law require;
  • How to deal with use of restrooms and changing areas;
  • Accommodating individuals whose stated gender is non-conforming to their identification for purposes of facility use and program participation;
  • How should your employees handle sensitive patron and participant issues relating to transgender rights;
  • What policies are appropriate to adopt.
The EEOC, the Department of Justice and special interest groups are paying close attention to how employers, public agencies and private businesses are accommodating the rights of transgender individuals. Demystifying the issues involved in transgender rights with your staff is the key to avoiding costly litigation.

Ancel Glink attorneys can train you and your staff on these cutting edge issues so that your entity avoids gender identity discrimination. Just as importantly, Ancel Glink will answer your questions about how to apply the law, even in the most sensitive or complicated situations, so that the rights of all individuals are respected. Questions will be answered such as who has superior rights and what to do if a patron is uncomfortable in the restroom or changing area, as well as how to accommodate the rights of a transgender employee, and many more.
