15 Equal Opportunities
5. Transgender people
If you have had ‘gender reassignment’ (often called a sex change), you have some legal protection against discrimination. The Sex Discrimination Act was changed in 1999 to protect transgender people against discrimination in employment and work training. But these regulations don’t cover housing, education or services.
The regulations cover anyone who is about to go through, is going through, or has gone through gender reassignment. If you are discriminated against for one of these reasons, you will have a claim under the Sex Discrimination Act. Employers should not discriminate when choosing people for a job or for dismissal. Also, for example, an employer should allow you time off work for necessary medical treatment in the same way they would for other kinds of necessary medical treatment. They should take action if you are harassed by other employees because of your gender reassignment.
The Equal Opportunities Commission has a guide ‘Sex Equality and Transexualism’, which deals in detail with this kind of discrimination, including examples of case decisions.
