The Government has published a new guide to transgender staff. The guide is for employers and covers the recruitment and retention of transgender staff. The publication also assists managers with what can be a thorny issue of dealing with issues in the work place that arise when an employee makes the gender transition.
Whilst not a frequent issue in employment law terms, most of the concerns arise with the change process for existing employees and how to handle the transition process. Many employers want to do the right thing but sometimes are paralysed by concerns about not saying or doing the right thing. The issues can be sensitive and require careful management so this is a good starting point for employers and managers.
