Employment discrimination in all of its ugliness is rampant against Transgender people even when there are non-discrimination laws in place.
In this case, litigation in some form is necessary if the offended individual is willing to pursue legal recourse whether it be a civil court action, mediation or as in the following case, appealing to some type of employment commission.
Our Transgender family, friends and allies need to realize that even if a fully inclusive Employment Non Discrimination Act makes its way through Congress and is signed into law, employment discrimination will still exist in its most subtle and ugly forms.
Depending on circumstances, it is the individual's responsibility to seek wise legal advice and then pursue the avenue offering the best recourse.
