It is estimated that Nevada is the home of 25,000 to 50,000 transgender people. In 2011, Nevada passed “AB 211” which defines gender identity or expression as “gender-related identity, appearance, expression or behavior of a person, regardless of the person’s assigned sex at birth.” However, the definition of “gender” adopted by the Nevada Legislature goes beyond protecting against transgender discrimination. It also prohibits discrimination based on an individual’s identity, appearance, expression or behavior as they relate to the individual’s gender. If you are a Nevada employer you should review your anti-discrimination policies as well as other company policies and procedures to ensure compliance.
