New NJ law prohibits transgender discrimination

This summer, New Jersey became the ninth state to outlaw discrimination against people because they are transsexual, cross-dressers, asexual, of ambiguous gender or not traditionally masculine or feminine.
    The law adds to New Jersey’s growing reputation as a state friendly to lesbians, gays and transgendered people. It’s too early to tell, but such laws may make the state more attractive as a place to live and work. That means employers should prepare for more applicants who are keenly aware of their rights under state law.
    Final note: New Jersey labor law posters will be updated to reflect the new protection.
