NJ Transgender Discrimination | Transexual Discrimination in NJ | NJ Discrimination Law

By Thomas McKinney

It is illegal in NJ to discriminate against transgender or transsexual job applicants or employees.  The New Jersey Legislature amended the NJ Law against Discrimination in 2006 to add “gender identity or expression” to the list of protected characteristics.  New Jersey is one of 12 states that currently protect transgender or transsexuals from discrimination.  This means that a transgender or transsexual job applicant cannot be denied a position based on gender identity or expression.  Also, they cannot be discriminated against in the workplace because they are a transsexual or are transgender.

If you or someone you know has been suffered NJ Transgender Discrimination or Discrimination because they are a transsexual, please call our NJ Discrimination Lawyers.
