That is SO last week

Last week, for the first time, the EEOC initiated a lawsuit alleging sex discrimination on behalf of a transgender employee.  This comes a little over a month after the OFCCP announced new contractor compliance measures related to gay, lesbian, transgender, and bisexual employees. Both agencies have faced criticism from the Obama White House for slow action.
 
The EEOC’s action demonstrates its focus on addressing all forms of sex discrimination and underlines the importance of anti-discrimination policies and training.
