Acas issues guidance for transsexual employees

The Institute for Employment Studies has published a new study that suggests managers are failing to provide adequate support to transsexual employees at work. According to the Acas-commissioned study, employers experience “discomfort” when using the term transsexual as there is a lack of knowledge around the experiences of gender non-conforming people in the workplace.

In response to the study, Acas has issued new guidance for employers.  The guidance suggests a number of measures, including the introduction of clear policies, the provision of quality diversity and equal opportunities training for line managers, and the use of LGBT champions to raise awareness of transsexual issues at work.
