Toilet / Locker room facilities

Which toilet should my employee use?

Your employee should use the toilet facilities corresponding to his gender presentation, just like anyone else. Once medical treatment has commenced, it will be inappropriate for him to continue using the women’s toilet.

Since toilet facilities are usually fitted with private stalls, privacy is not normally an issue. As his appearance becomes increasingly masculinised, any issues relating to the use of the men’s facilities should disappear.

We have a locker room. What should we do?

It would be very extremely uncomfortable for a pre-operative employee to disrobe in the presence of other employees. Any solution needs to ensure a safe, convenient, and dignified outcome for all employees.

Locker room situations are best handled on a case-by-case basis. The genuine of concerns of all staff need to be addressed by finding respectful and workable solutions.
