Why I Support Transgender Rights:
An Employer-Side Lawyer’s Story

By Catherine Reuben   January 9, 2015

Cathy Reuben authored a chapter in Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Discrimination in the Workplace.

This is the first book to comprehensively address workplace law and human resource practice relating to gender identity, sexual orientation, and gender expression.  The book is a must-have for labor and employment lawyers and human resource (HR) professionals. Anti-discrimination law in this area has exploded over the past five years as more states and courts have expanded the law to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) employees. This groundbreaking volume extensively discusses the current status of this rapidly changing area of law and serves as a critical tool for workplace law practitioners.

This new treatise surveys state and federal employment laws applicable to LGBT employees and discusses a wide range of HR best practices. Both legal and HR components are contextualized by a collection of 19 essays discussing the implications of gender and sexual orientation in society, across areas such as education, religion, and the workplace, as well in the lives of several essayists who have shared their personal stories and recommendations for employers, thus making this volume an invaluable all-in-one resource.
