With the current story of the tranny teacher wanting to parade his/her mental disability in front of children I thought that I would examine what exactly our new Oregon law covers in this area. Behold the informal guild from the Bureau of Labor and Industries.
How to Create a Transgender Friendly Work Place
As of January 1, 2008, it is against the law for all Oregon employers to discriminate against an employee based on sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
Gender expression describes how a person communicates the person’s gender identity to the world through behavior, clothes, haircut, etc.
This is what seperates the "gay" stuff from actual biological traits. This discrimination law protects behavior rather than something innate.
What do I do if one of my employees says he or she is going to transition into the opposite sex?
You can start by asking the employee what the person needs from you, the employer, in order to make the workplace transition as smooth as possible.
You, the employer, should ask what you can do for your employee when it's suggested that they want to mutilate their genitals. What would I suggest you do? Move to a state where you don't have to put up with this nonsense.
What about the bathroom issue?
An Oregon employer must allow a transgendered person to use whichever bathroom is consistent with the person’s expressed gender. So, if one of your male employees comes to you one day and says he is going to transition into a female (M to F), expect that at some point this employee will begin to use the female bathroom. The transgendered employee is the best judge of when it is time to switch bathrooms.
Again, it's simply time to move when your state government tells you that you must let the men use the women's bathroom at their request.
What if my other employees are uncomfortable with sharing a bathroom or a workplace with a transgendered employee?
Explain to your other employees that you comply with Oregon law regarding the rights and protections of transgendered individuals and you expect the same from them.
Translation: too bad. It's probably a good time to explain to your employees that you are moving your company to a free state where you are allowed to hire/fire employees at will.
