Sixth Circuit Rules Title VII Covers Transgender Discrimination

Monday, April 2, 2018
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals on March 7, 2018, ruled that employers cannot discriminate against transgender employees without violating Title VII. The appeals court rejected the employer’s attempt to claim that its religious beliefs should protect it from such discrimination claims.  The Sixth Circuit covers Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan and Tennessee.  Employers should review their policies and procedures with counsel to make sure they are in compliance.  See EEOC v. R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes, Inc., No. 16-2424 (6th Cir. Mar. 7, 2018)
