CASE ENTRY

Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes, Inc.

Michigan funeral home owner fires employee who intends to transition from male to female. Can the EEOC sue the owner, who believes one’s sex is an immutable God-given gift? The Sixth Circuit says yes; firing someone for failing to conform to stereotypical gender norms is illegal discrimination, as is firing them for transitioning genders, and religious convictions to the contrary don’t change that here.
