    Here is a response from Atlanta attorney Raanon Gal, an editor of Georgia Employment Law Letter. He has written about the status of transgender employees for the publication, and this article also appeared in the ezine Diversity Insight at Raanon's contact info is below. tk

    Sharon, I recommend labeling the EEO-1 report according to the gender that the employee identifies with. If the employee has outed himself/herself to the employer, then best practice is to treat the employee as the newly presented gender.
