News: Canton, Ohio transgender protections

I'm going away for the weekend up to the cabin in the mountains where there's no internet access, just rest and relaxation, so I'm posting this tonight for the morning. See you Monday.

A new ordinance passed in Canton is intended to protect transgender employees. Though the city's new ordinance does not refer to the traditional formulation of "gender identity," the word "sex" was changed to "gender," in order to cover transgender employees. A member of the council said that the use of the word “gender” instead of “sex” protects transgender employees, and said the city would argue that position in any legal action.

Canton, Ohio is headquarters to one Fortune 500 company, Timken (TKR).
