Pronouns in the Workplace: Policies, Procedures and Practices
Melissa Fleischer

Sometimes managers can create inadvertent problems for organizations merely by refusing to comply with an employee’s request to be called by a certain name or pronoun. Managers usually think this is ridiculous or not important and fail to comply with the employee’s wishes. This can cause significant legal liability for an organization. Today, more than ever, managers and others in the workplace need to understand what the use of pronouns means, how failing to do this can create legal liability for an organization, and what the pronoun policy should include. But what pronouns should you use? Should you have a policy on pronouns? What should such a policy include? Should you provide training on this issue?
