The program will address how schools treat transgender students as it relates to accommodations for the use of locker rooms or restrooms. These issues have become a hotly debated issue throughout the country. It is anticipated that the issue regarding the treatment of transgender students’ and employees’ use of restrooms and locker rooms will continue throughout the Federal District Courts within the United States. Our panelists will discuss the evolution of transgender issues and the law, several recent Federal decisions and best practices for employers to attempt to avoid litigation.
