New York Public Personnel Law Cites Post by Amanda Gómez on Gender DiscriminationNew York Public Personnel Law February 21, 2019
A Hospitality Labor and Employment Law blog post, authored by Amanda M. Gómez, Associate in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice, in the firm’s New York office, titled “NYC Commission on Human Rights Adopts Rules Establishing Broad Interpretation of Laws Prohibiting Gender Discrimination,” was cited by New York Public Personnel Law.
Following is an excerpt:
The New York City Commission on Human Rights (the “Commission”) has adopted new rules (“Rules”) which establish broad protections for transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming individuals. The Rules, which define various terms related to gender identity and expression, re-enforce recent statutory changes to the definition of the term “gender,” and clarify the scope of protections afforded gender identity status under the New York City Human Rights Law. New York State also just added gender identity and expression as protected classifications under the state Human Rights Law, following the adoption of the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act.
