This guide was produced by the Victorian Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (VHREOC) and Transgender Victoria. It has been developed for all employers operating in Victoria, regardless of the size of their organisation. The duties of an employer extend to all full-time, part-time and casual workers, agents and contractors, trainees and apprentices, clients and job applicants.

The guideline also provides information on legal obligations to prevent discrimination against transgender people in recruitment. This applies to organisations and individuals involved in all aspects of recruitment including:

• human resource professionals
• recruitment consultants
• employment services agencies
• anyone with responsibility for interviewing or recruiting new employees.


Transgender Victoria (TGV) was founded in the late 1990s to achieve justice, equity and quality health and community service provision for trans and gender diverse (TGD) people, their partners, families and friends.

TGV uses TGD to refer to people whose gender identity or expression is different from that which was assigned at birth or that which is expected of them by society.
