    We had this type of thing in our office over 12 years ago. The transgendered person agreed to use the unisex bathroom near the shipping dock. Settled.

    Our office is older, only has 1 toilet for the females and 2 toilets + 1 urinal for males. There are many more ladies than gents at our office. We have been known to knock on the gents’ br door & if there’s no response, go in–lock the door & use the restroom, Necessity for us. We don’t have any transg. issues….

    Since there is only 1 stall in females’ bathroom, when you go in, you flip the deadbolt–then NO ONE is getting in. =)
