The New York City Commission on Human Rights has just released a Human Rights Legal Enforcement Guidance on Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Expression. The Guidance defines eight categories of discriminatory conduct in employment, public accommodations, and housing and provides examples of violations that, in some cases, treat as illegal decisions or behaviors that would generally be considered perfectly lawful under federal law. Accordingly, any employer or business with operations in New York City should familiarize its management employees with the strict requirements of these new Guidelines. Those employers and businesses may find it prudent to adopt NYCHRL-compliant policies on a company-wide basis.

Please see full Alert below for more information.
