Gender Neutral Restroom Laws and Compliance

Discussions regarding Gender Neutral Restroom Laws or Gender Neutral Compliance can sometimes raise intense debates. Whether your personal views are “for” or “against” when it comes to gender neutral restrooms, the fact is: In the state of California, there is an active law on the books requiring businesses to post single occupant gender neutral restroom signage.

Granted, February 23, 2017 President Donald Trump reversed the federal guidelines on gender neutral restrooms in public schools set during the Obama administration. However this reversal means that states and municipalities will be choosing if and when they will change their rules for restroom signage. Many states and municipalities, will move forward with the changes toward single occupancy gender neutral restrooms and signage.
