New Massachusetts Amendments Related to Gender Identity Discrimination Go Into Effect October 1: What Massachusetts Employers Should Know

The Massachusetts Legislature recently amended the General Laws of Massachusetts, Chapter 272 (M.G.L. ch. 272), to prohibit discrimination in places of public accommodation based on an individual’s gender identity. The amendments become effective October 1, 2016.

Massachusetts Passes Transgender Accommodations Law

On July 11, 2016, Governor Charlie Baker signed Massachusetts's transgender accommodations bill into law, which will allow transgender individuals to use restrooms, changing rooms, and locker rooms that match their gender identities rather than the biological sex assigned at their birth.

Massachusetts Passes Legislation to Protect Gender Identity

On November 16, 2011, the Massachusetts legislature passed a transgender anti-discrimination bill, which Governor Deval Patrick is expected to sign into law this week. If the bill is signed by the Governor, “gender identity” will become a protected category under Massachusetts non-discrimination statutes. The new law also will add gender identity as a protected category to several laws intended to protect people from hate crimes and harassment.
