Do I have to disclose that I am transgender?
There may be some circumstances where you may be obliged to disclose your gender history, such as for background criminal checks or insurance. However, this does not mean you have to disclose your biological gender to your colleagues or even your manager if you do not wish to.
An employer has a duty to keep such information confidential and you can approach a manager or HR officer for advice if necessary.
