EEOC Addresses Transgender Restroom Rights

Last week, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission published a fact sheet on its website defining “transgender” and stating that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits denying an employee equal access to a common restroom corresponding to the employee’s gender identity. The fact sheet also contains links to further information from other federal government agencies on the issue. Access the fact sheet here.
