Minnesota Bill Regarding Gender Specific Accommodations (SF 3002)
This law was last updated on Jun 1, 2016
SF 3002 would add an exception to the Minnesota Human Rights Act for employers that are places of public accommodation by preventing claims of discrimination by an employee based on sexual orientation in regards to the use of restrooms.
The bill defines a person’s “sex” as biological. The bill states that “nontraditional identity” or “sexual orientation” may not override another person’s right of privacy based on biological sex.
The bill would require places of public accommodation to reserve restrooms, locker rooms, and dressing rooms for individuals based on their biological sex.
The bill would prohibit public schools and universities from allowing access to restrooms, locker rooms, and dressing rooms to students except on the basis of biological sex.
Companion bill to HF 3396.
