Labor Department Says Transgenders’ Ability to Use Bathroom of Choice a ‘Health and Safety Issue’

This ruling by the Department of Labor is pure politically correct malarkey.  OSHA has issued new rules governing the use of bathrooms in the workplace by employees who say they are transgender that allows an individual to use whatever bathroom he or she wants.

It’s a “health and safety issue,” don’t you know?

Washington Free Beacon:

The Department of Labor (DOL) issued instructions for how private businesses should address a transgender individual who wants to use a different bathroom, arguing that allowing transwomen to use the ladies bathroom is a matter of “health and safety.”

“The core belief underlying these policies is that all employees should be permitted to use the facilities that correspond with their gender identity,” according to the guidance, issued by the DOL’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). “For example, a person who identifies as a man should be permitted to use men’s restrooms, and a person who identifies as a woman should be permitted to use women’s restrooms.”

“The employee should determine the most appropriate and safest option for him- or herself,” the document said.
