Transgender Bathroom Access At Work: New Federal Guidelines

Jun 2, 2015

The plan comes after a request from the National Center for Transgender Equality that OSHA develop guidelines on bathroom access. Here & Now’s Robin Young talks with Jason Bellini of The Wall Street Journal about the new guidelines expanding transgender rights in the workplace.
