NC HB2 Law: Law Discriminates On More Than Gender Identification

NC HB2 Law Has Consequences Beyond Transgender Bathrooms

The N.C. General Assembly passed a new discrimination law, HB2, on March 23, 2016. The media has focused on the HB2 law's prohibition of transgendered persons from using bathrooms and other sex segregated facilities. The HB2 law requires that transgendered persons use facilities that correspond to their birth gender. The law, however, has wider reaching implications for all North Carolina workers. Namely, the law has now stripped all North Carolina workers from using state courts to protect their rights against any form of employment discrimination.
