- Bill would require transgender-rights training for CA employers
By Marissa Lang - Saturday Jul 1, 2017
Both gender identity and gender expression have been protected classes under California’s antidiscrimination law since 2011, but the state’s new workplace guidelines, which take effect Saturday, flesh out how employers should apply those protections to workers.More than 75 percent of transgender Californians have experienced mistreatment or harassment at work, according to a 2016 national survey by the National Center for Transgender Equality and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.“We had been doing research for some time in our office about the access to jobs and financial security for our transgender brother and sisters, and the data is just eye-opening,” Lara said.According to a 2008 report by the Transgender Law Center, the most recent of its kind, 1 in 4 transgender Californians surveyed reported earning wages below the national poverty line.“You have trans folks of color, folks with disabilities, there can be a lot of barriers to finding employment,” said Clair Farley, the director of economic development at the SF LGBT Center.When folks transition on the job, they tend to leave their workplace — whether voluntarily or not — and that can really increase their risk for continued unemployment.Under the new rules, employers must give transgender and gender-nonconforming employees access to restrooms, showers and locker rooms that correspond with their gender identity.Unless the business can make the case for why it is an absolute necessity, managers may not impose any grooming or dress standards on a person inconsistent with that individual’s gender identity or gender expression.If we find people are too extravagant in their display, we may counsel the employee and say, ‘Look, you might think it looks great to have 16 loops through your nose, but male or female or in between, it’s going to get in the way and be distracting at your job.Lara’s bill would mandate “employers with 50 or more employees to include, as a component of that prescribed (sexual harassment) training … training inclusive of harassment based on gender identity, expression and sexual orientation.”“When we do our training with businesses, we usually start by asking, ‘How many of you have ever met or have a friend who is transgender?’ It’s usually about 80 to 90 percent have not,” said Michaela Mendelsohn, a transgender activist, restaurant owner and founder of TransCanWork.org.

The network has secured the U.S. rights for three crime-focused shows — “100 Code,” “Shoot the Messenger,” and “Pure” — which will join the previously announced Anna Paquin-fronted “Bellevue” to add to the network’s stash of “primecrime” programming.When a high school hockey star wrestling with his gender identity goes missing and all signs point to foul play, Detective Annie Ryder (Anna Paquin) must unravel all the pieces to this gripping mystery before her own life falls apart.A gritty political-crime thriller centering on the complex relationships between crime reporters and the police, “Shoot the Messenger” follows Daisy Channing (Elyse Levesque), a young reporter trying to balance a messy personal life with a burgeoning career. Things begin to go sideways for Daisy when she witnesses a murder she thinks is gang related, only to find herself slowly drawn into an interconnected web of criminal and illicit sexual activity that reaches into the corridors of corporate and political power.With help from her editor Mary Foster (Alex Kingston), co-worker Simon Olenski (Lucas Bryant), and lead homicide detective Kevin Lutz (Lyriq Bent), Daisy uncovers a cover-up so scandalous it could bring down the government.“Shoot the Messenger” is produced by Jennifer Holness and Victoria Woods for Hungry Eyes Film & Television Inc. in association with CBC Television and ITV Studios Global Entertainment.Inspired by true events, “Pure” is the journey of Noah Funk-newly elected Mennonite pastor-who is determined to rid his community of the scourge of drugs and its nefarious ties to a transborder smuggling alliance with ruthless Mexican cocaine cartels. NY, “Justified” as Detective Bronco Novak; and Oscar and Golden Globe Nominee Rosie Perez (“Search Party,” White Men Can’t Jump) as DEA Agent Phoebe O’Reilly.Developed by Academy Award winner Bobby Moresco (Crash, Million Dollar Baby), “100 Code” stars Dominic Monaghan (“Lost,” Lord of the Rings Trilogy) as New York Detective Tommy Conley and the late Michael Nyqvist (John Wick, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as the by-the-book Swedish detective Mikael Eklund.
