In Brief: Guidance on Recruiting and Retaining Transgender Employees

In partnership with Inclusive Employers – a membership organisation for employers looking to build inclusive workplaces – the Government has produced guidance designed to provide employers with practical advice, suggestions and ideas on the recruitment and retention of transgender employees and potential employees. It is also a useful guide for the managers of trans staff and for trans staff themselves.

The guidance also provides clarification as to how the law applies in England, Scotland and Wales, defining different types of discrimination under the Equality Act 2010 with examples of discriminatory treatment. There is also a section on the Gender Recognition Act 2004.
