Harris Faulkner, a Fox News anchor, reportedly said on Wednesday that corporations with generally conservative policies, including potentially Fox News itself, could need to alter some of them in order to adhere to woke state regulations.
According to the business policy, Fox News workers are free to dress according to their preferred gender, use toilets that correspond to their gender identity, and be addressed in public spaces using their preferred names and pronouns.
Fox further offers to assist staff members in creating a “Workplace Transition Plan” to facilitate their gender change in the workplace.
On “Outnumbered” on Wednesday, Faulkner made comments about it while speaking with the host Kayleigh McEnany on the company’s diversity, equality, and inclusion policy.
Fox’s rules appear to be in compliance with the laws of both California, where a sizable portion of its workforce is employed, and New York City, where the firm is located.
Employers must, regardless of a person’s biological sex, use the name, pronouns, and title with which they identify in accordance with the New York City Human Rights Law.
To purposefully or persistently decline to use a person’s chosen name, pronouns, or title is against the law.
In 2017, the Fair Employment and Housing Council of California passed new rules related to transgender employees. Similar restrictions apply to an employee’s use of the restroom, transitioning, attire, chosen name, and pronouns.
A number of LGBTQ+ terminology, including cisgender, gender expression, gender-fluid, gender identity, gender nonconforming, gender transition, LGBTQ, nonbinary, and transgender, are defined in the Fox guide by the Human Rights Campaign, one of the most well-known LGBTQ+ groups in the US.
Fox has consistently gotten a flawless score on the Corporate Equality Index of the woke Human Rights Campaign.
