Transgender people at work – preventing gender identity discrimination

Work should be a safe and inclusive place where everyone is respected. However, trans and gender diverse people experience significant levels of discrimination in the workplace.

This webinar will explain the rights of trans and gender diverse people, and the duties of workplaces. It will explore how to apply the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission’s Guideline on Transgender people at work to take practical action to uphold the law for all workers.

The webinar will:

  • build awareness of the rights of workers to be free from discrimination on the basis of their sex, gender identity, sexual orientation and sex characteristics
  • clarify the duties of employers outlined in the Commission’s Guideline
  • discuss practical action that workplaces can take to prevent and respond to workplace discrimination of trans and gender diverse workers.

Presented by Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission
