Senate Bill 952, the “Reverse Woke Act”, was introduced to the Florida State Senate by Republican Senator Blaise Ingoglia on Monday. The bill details how businesses that pay for employee gender transition surgeries must pay for employee detransitions should they realize the grievous mistake they made in transitioning.
“Woke businesses need to be held accountable when offering to pay for gender-affirming surgeries in other states, such as California because they are nothing more than political decisions masquerading as healthcare and human resource decisions,” Ingoglia said.
The proposed requirement this bill sets forth would not be affected if the person leaves the company that paid for the surgery. As long as company insurance was used to pay for a transition, the company is liable to pay for the detransition, and could face legal fines if the company refuses to pay.
The enforcement of the “Reverse Woke Act” is yet to be decided, and if confirmed by the Florida state legislature, it would go into effect on July 1.
