Gender Identity/Gender Expression

For Gender Identity/Gender Expression:

The Maine Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation (which includes gender identity and gender expression) in employment, education, and public accommodations.  University policy also prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.  According to Maine Human Rights Commission employment regulations:

It is an unlawful employment practice for an employer…  to fail or refuse to make reasonable accommodations in rules, policies, practices, or services that apply directly or indirectly to gender identity or gender expression, unless the covered entity can demonstrate that the accommodations would impose an undue hardship on the conduct of the business of the covered entity.

MHRC Ch. 94-348 § 3(F)(1).
