Woman Settles Gender Stereotyping Discrimination Case
A woman who was ousted from the Village restaurant Caliente Cab Company for looking too masculine has settled her discrimination case against the restaurant. According to the Village Voice, the restaurant:
has agreed to add gender, including gender identity and expression, to its corporate non-discrimination policy; amend its employee handbook to state "persons patronizing or employed at Caliente have the right to use the bathroom facilities consistent with their gender identity and expression”; adopt a gender-neutral dress code for its employees; institute personnel training programs regarding its new policies; and pay $35,000 in damages to plaintiff Farmer.
