Sexual Reassignment

For discussion with colleagues during Sexual reassignment

Colleagues who are embarking on Sexual reassignment will need some support and flexibility at this time. You should meet with them to agree how their reassignment will take place. Some of the issues you may need to discuss are:

  • The timescale for any medical or cosmetic treatment.
  • When and how to inform colleagues and clients.
  • When they may wish to change their name, personal details, and social identity.
  • The need for flexibility in the dress code, where applicable.
  • Amending personnel records.
  • Using single-sex facilities.
  • Ensuring hostile or negative reactions among the workforce are addressed effectively.
  • Whether they wish to stay in their current post or request redeployment

For further information on sexuality and transgender issues see the CDC website.
