Transgender Bias Costs Company $115,000+

from BuzzFeed

"The company has changed its policies to ensure that transgender employees may use a restroom commensurate with their gender identity, that the company will promptly correct that employee's sex designation and name in our internal records and systems, and that we will take hostile comments based on sex-stereotyping seriously, investigate them, and take prompt corrective and remedial action." That's part of the personal apology that Deluxe Financial Services, Inc., as part of a $115,000 consent decree, agreed to write to Britney Austin, a former Deluxe employee who told the company in 2011 that she was transitioning from male to female. Austin alleged that the company refused to change her name on company records, denied her health-insurance coverage for transition-related care, and denied her severance pay and COBRA benefits when it shuttered the facility where she worked. Is your firm prepared to handle such situations? Expect more such situations in the future. more
