Gender Identity in the Workplace
Despite gender reassignment discrimination having been unlawful in the UK since 1999, gender remains a poorly understood issue when it comes to the day-to-day lives of employees.
As the rarest of the nine protected characteristics, many managers will not have supported a transgender member of staff in their organisation and may be at a loss as to how to do so.
In this webinar we’ll discuss the current state of play for gender reassignment in the workplace and speak with people at the cutting edge of battles over trans rights.
Hosted by Head of Employment Ellie Gilbert, we'll gain insights from joint authors of recently published "A Practical Guide to Transgender Law" Robin Moira White and Nicola Newbegin from Old Square Chambers, alongside CEO and Founder of Otter Intelligence, Gabe Barrett.
