LAD Amended to Protect Transgender Individuals

Posted by Frank Steinberg | Dec 20, 2006 | 0 Comments

The Newark Star-Ledger reports today that the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination has been amended to protect from discrimination transgender persons.

"The bill (S-362) defines transgendered individuals as having or perceived as having a different gender-related identity or expression than the one typically associated with a person's sex at birth."

We haven't seen the full bill yet, but will report more when we do.

In the meantime, since the LAD is among the primary laws that affect the employment relationship in New Jersey, employers need to know that there is another protected class of persons of which to be aware in making personnel decisions.
