HSF to pay for gender reassignment surgery for transgender employees

Herbert Smith Freehills (HSF) has become the first law firm to offer to cover part or all of the costs of gender reassignment surgery for its transgender employees. The firm has launched global transitioning guidelines which contain the medical benefit as well as access to psychological support under the firm’s medical benefits scheme. Other benefits include time off for medical appointments, procedures and for those who need to support family members who are transitioning.
