DOJ States Transgender Discrimination Not Covered Under Title VII

August 19th, 2019

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) states that cases of transgender discrimination at work are not covered under law. On August 16, the DOJ informed the U.S. Supreme Court that transgender workers are not covered under Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act despite other cases resulting in successful outcomes citing employment discrimination of transgender workers. The DOJ claims that the law refers to inequality between male and female employees, which is unfair to workers who identify as transgendered. In October, the Supreme Court will review three employment discrimination cases to determine if LGBTQ workers may be covered under Title VII.

Employment discrimination lodged against transgender workers must be treated like any other form of workplace bias. In May 2017, our law firm successfully litigated a case of transgender discrimination committed against our client by an outdoor retailer. The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania recognized that the retailer engaged in verbal abuse of the worker and harbored a hostile work environment for the transgender employee.

If you faced employment discrimination at your job due to your gender identity, our Philadelphia LGBTQ discrimination lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. will dedicate our efforts to ensure you a favorable outcome. Call us at 215-569-1999 or contact us online to arrange a free case review.
