Gender Neutral Bathrooms: AB 1732... Are you ready?

Gender Neutral Bathrooms: AB 1732... Are you ready?

Posted by Customer Support on Jan 12, 2017

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law new legislation will ensure equal access to public toilets, regardless of a person’s gender identity. Starting March 2017, all of California’s single-user restrooms in public buildings will be designated as “gender neutral.” According to Assemblyman Phil Ting, a Democrat who sponsored the bill, this establishes “the nation’s most inclusive restroom access law among states.”

Assembly Bill 1732 reads:

All single-user toilet facilities in any business establishment, place of public accommodation, or state or local government agency shall be identified as all-gender toilet facilities by signage that complies with Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations, and designated for use by no more than one occupant at a time or for family or assisted use.

AB 1732 would enact the nation’s most progressive restroom access policy among the states, requiring all single-occupancy restrooms in businesses, government buildings and places of public accommodation to be available to everyone. Compliance with the bill is a matter of changing a sign on a restroom door.
