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.
