What You Need to Know About the Transgender Equal Rights Law

Wednesday, January 25, 2012 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


The Transgender Equal Rights law, effective July 1, 2012, prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity in employment, education, housing, credit, and lending. This program will provide an overview for practitioners on: the definition of the term "gender identity," steps employers and others can take to comply with the law, the basics of representing transgender individuals, and how we expect the MCAD will handle claims for transgender discrimination.
