Show Notes

Trans employees (those identifying as transgender, non-binary and gender queer) are a segment of workers who have historically encountered severe and frequent discrimination at work, including discriminatory hiring, promotion and termination, insensitive treatment and outright physical and sexual assault. In this episode of All Things Work, Jillian Weiss, an attorney specializing in providing legal representation to LGBTQ employees, joins host Tony Lee to discuss the current state of the work environment for trans employees and provide advice for HR and people managers who are new to working with transgender individuals.
