A person who is born of one gender but decides to live as the opposite gender is transgender. As more and more transgender people are publicly acknowledging their decision to live as a man or a woman, many have experienced discrimination and harassment in the workplace, either by their employer, supervisors, or co-workers. Sidney L. Gold is dedicated to protecting the rights of transgender people and ensuring that they are treated fairly in the workplace.
Using the protections afforded by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, our Philadelphia employment discrimination lawyers have fiercely advocated and defended transgender clients. Discriminatory practices such as failure to hire, demotions, denial of promotions, and wrongful termination are just some examples of successful litigation Sidney L. Gold has provided to his transgender clients.
