J.Crew Accused of Discriminating Against Potential Transgender Employees

 


 

Nonprofit group Make the Road filed a complaint with the attorney general’s
office against J.Crew, whom they accuse of discriminating against transgender
job applicants. In a test, a transgender person applying at the Fifth Avenue store
"was treated brusquely, told to fill out an application, and was never
called." His testing partner, however, went into the same store a few
minutes later, filled out the application, was interviewed immediately, and
soon after was offered a job. [Gothamist]
