Discrimination Based on Gender Stereotypying

20 Apr

In Glenn v. Brumby, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit held a government agent violates the Equal Protection Clause’s prohibition of sex-based discrimination when he or she fires a transgender or transsexual employee because of his or her gender non-conformity.  For the Eleventh Circuit, this ruling sets a major precedent.
