The Equality Act 2015 allows equal pay for equal work.
The Sex Discrimination Act 2010, introduced by the Coalition Government in 2010, allows for protection for sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.
And the Equality Act 2016, which will come into effect in the spring, will give equal pay protection to men and women in the workplace.
But these protections do not extend to those who are transgender.
The Equality and Human Rights Act 1998, which came into effect from 1 July 2018, allows transgender people to apply for a gender recognition certificate to change their legal sex.
The Gender Recognition Act 2003, introduced in 2006, gives trans people the right to change the sex on their birth certificates.
The Sexual Orientation (Amendment) Act 2004 and the Gender Recognitions (Scotland) Act 2013 give trans people access to gender recognition certificates.
This is the case whether the person is male or female.
For example, if a woman in Scotland wants a certificate stating that she is male, she can do so by filing a formal application with the Gender Identity Centre of Edinburgh.
But if a trans person wants a gender change certificate, the gender recognition application must be submitted to the Gender Change Service.
The person must provide details of their physical appearance and other personal information, such as a birth certificate.
In some cases, they will also be required to undergo an interview and to provide proof of their legal name change.
The Transsexuality Act 2016 allows trans people to change sex on the sex change certificate in a court of law.
But the Gender Equality Act, as amended in 2017, does not allow transgender people the same rights as others in the country to change gender on a certificate issued by a public authority.
The law is complex and not always enforced, as there is no national legislation in place.
What is the legal status of gender recognition?
It is illegal for a person to be required by a court to present evidence to prove that they are male or a female on a sex change application.
This can be done by either a judge or an authority.
There are three main ways in which gender recognition can be refused: 1.
a court is satisfied that a person’s gender identity or expression is not consistent with their biological sex.
In these cases, the court may refuse a person the gender change.
a person presents evidence that the person’s physical appearance or other personal characteristics do not conform with their gender identity.
In this case, the person can apply to the court for a certificate that states that they do not meet the requirements for gender recognition.
In many countries, the Gender Rights Act 2015, introduced on 6 May 2018, gives transgender people access.
However, the legislation does not cover countries such as Australia or New Zealand where trans people can only apply for legal recognition through a Gender Recognizance Act certificate.
a state or territory decides that gender recognition should not be allowed for a reason other than the gender they identify with.
In Australia, for example, a state has the right not to recognise a person based on their gender expression or physical appearance.
However in some other countries, such a refusal may be based on a person who is a victim of gender-based violence, or a person with a mental health condition that makes it more difficult to transition.
The Scottish Government says that this will only happen if a transgender person presents a case to the Scottish Human Rights Tribunal (SHRT).
The SHRT is a tribunal that decides whether a law violates human rights.
However it is not legally independent.
It is run by an independent legal advice body, which has a separate, non-partisan body of independent experts, called the Equality and Equality Commission.
The commission has a range of independent recommendations on issues including employment and discrimination, health, family law and disability law.
In the Scottish Government’s latest draft policy, it also says that the Gender Justice Commission is to act as the UK’s independent expert on the rights of transgender people.
But some trans activists are concerned that the Equality Commission is likely to be too supportive of transgender equality.
“I am concerned that if the Equality Justice Commission were to look at trans people, they would see that it is in their best interests to do so in a way that minimises the impact on transgender people and that they would not seek to change legislation that does not go far enough,” says trans campaigner Jody Mavis.
“They have no interest in considering the impact of laws on transgender communities, or their impact on people with disabilities, or on those with HIV/Aids, or other illnesses.
If the Equality Equality Commission were looking at the impacts of trans rights on trans people in Scotland, they wouldn’t have looked at these issues, because they are not relevant to trans rights in Scotland.”
