    The New York City Commission on Human Rights has issued rules that fine employers for referring to transsexuals by their real gender.

    The new “guidance” (“NYC Pronoun Ban”), which has power to levy hefty fines against “violators” who “discriminate,” is an extension of the New York City Human Rights Law, based on the city’s laws against gender discrimination.

    Failing to use an individual’s preferred name or pronoun, under the new ban, will be considered a violation of New York City Human Rights Law, punishable by fines up to $250,000.

    “Refusal to use a transgender employee’s preferred name, pronoun, or title (e.g., Ms./Mrs.) may constitute unlawful gender-based harassment,” the new NYC Pronoun Ban reads.

    Why would anyone be doing otherwise? But until I receive notice from you or HR that your name is any different than the name under which you were hired, I'm going with what I know.

    They needed a law for this?[​IMG]

    Regulation without representation?

    Once upon a time congress was the only legislative (law making) branch of government. Now every government agency acts as if they have the authority to make laws and prescribe punishments whenever they feel like it.

    Don't knowingly hire one and the problem is solved.
