    Trump Admin for Discrimination: Trans Workers

    Well...this is interesting.

    The Trump administrationís Department of Justice is asking the Supreme Court to set a legal precedent that would enable employers to fire employees because they are transgender.

    The Department of Justice has submitted a brief to the Court Friday asking the Justices to rule that Title VII, a federal law that prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of sex, race, color, religion or national origin, does not protect transgender people.

    There are definitely two sides to this argument. On one, there is a simple civil rights matter which should protect people with medical conditions from discrimination. On the other is a more complex matter which should allow employers to choose exactly who they have representing their company.

    I side on civil rights here. But, I can certainly appreciate the other side's argument.

    I think they should have the right to fire them.

    The funeral home owner claimed it would distract people mourning. I'd like to see evidence of that.

    It is indeed interesting. In most cases companies freely discriminate based on sex, race, religion, etc. when they hire. You can't typically prove it, but they do it all day every day. In this case, she's transitioning mid-job...oops. They want to re-do that hiring choice. I wonder if they had just let her do it, even helped her perhaps, if they would have gotten loss of business/complaints. If they got lots of complains/loss of business from an employee, can they use that as grounds for termination, not gender? Would seem the more fair approach? Maybe people would have been cool about it.

    Mean and pointless just for the sake of being mean and pointless. Frankly, I'm surprised he hasn't done this already.

    I think there is something to letting it play out, and documenting distraction as the reason for firing, rather than them guessing at it. And if no distraction, they get over it and let her be.
