In this new podcast episode, recent cases and news from the world of Labor & Employment Law will be discussed, including:

Transgender Employee Issues – Two new cases from Illinois involve claims of discrimination by transgender employees.  In Hobby Lobby v. Sommerville, an employee was denied access to the women’s restroom and in Todd v. JB for Governor, a campaign worked claims that she was included in a reduction in force because of transphobic bias.

Religious Discrimination – In Rivas v. Caesar Enterprise Services, a casino employee was terminated for refusing to work on her religion’s Sabbath day despite requesting an accommodation.  In Starkey v. Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Indianapolis, a guidance counselor at a Catholic high school brought a discrimination claim when her contract was not renewed because she was in a same sex marriage.

Dress Code and Politics – The NLRB recently filed a complaint against Home Depot for discriminating against an employee who wore a Black Lives Matter slogan on his work apron.
