Valerie Hoffman and Annette Tyman were quoted in an August 9 story “Contractors Offered Advice on Avoiding Transgender Bias” from Bloomberg BNA on how federal contractors and subcontractors are now at the forefront of establishing inclusive workplaces for transgender employees. Hoffman said contractors should review and modify their equal employment opportunity, affirmative action and non-harassment policies and procedures to include gender identity protections. Tyman said an open legal question is whether transition-related medical procedures are covered under the Family and Medical Leave Act.
