The Law Society has issued a practice note for solicitors, their employees and consultants who work with transgender employees.
Trans or transgender are inclusive terms for people whose identity differs from what is typically associated with the gender they were assigned at birth, and gender reassignment is a protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010.
Solicitors need to show a positive approach to transgender employees to ensure they can attract, promote and retain the best talent to work in their practice.
