Dissecting the debate over restroom use by transgender students

May 17, 2016

On Tuesday’s St. Louis on the Air, attorney Jessica Liss, a managing shareholder at the St. Louis office of Jackson Lewis, joined the program to discuss the Obama administration’s recent guidance regarding restroom use by transgender students in public schools.

At its core, the guidance for public schools, colleges and universities solidifies one thing: "Objections from other students and parents will not serve as a defense for transgender discrimination,” Liss told host Don Marsh.

During the segment, Liss also discussed the dispute between North Carolina and the Department of Justice and what employers in the area should know about trans issues in the workplace.
