This manual provides guidelines and procedures to address the needs of transgender and gender non-conforming employees.
From the manual: An LASD Guide: Transgender & Gender Non-Conforming Employees
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department does not tolerate discrimination on the basis of sex, race, color, ancestry, religion, national origin, age (40 and over), disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, medical condition, or any other characteristics protected by federal or state law. This is designed to create a safe and productive workplace environment for all employees.
This publication sets forth guidelines to address the needs of transgender and gender non-conforming employees and clarifies how the law should be implemented in situations where questions may arise about how to protect the legal rights or safety of all employees. These guidelines do not anticipate every situation that might occur with respect to transgender or gender non-conforming employees, and the needs of each employee must be assessed on a case-by-case basis. In all cases, the goal is to ensure the safety and comfort of transgender or gender non-conforming employees while maximizing the employee's workplace integration and minimizing stigmatization of the employee.
