Old Dominion Trucking Line Fires Transgender Woman

According to Lavender Newswire:

"The American Civil Liberties Union filed a sex discrimination lawsuit today against Old Dominion Freight Lines for illegally firing a truck driver for impersonating a female after she informed the company that she was transitioning from male to female. A prior EEOC investigation into the firing sided with the driver, Kaylee Seals, finding there was reasonable cause to believe that Old Dominion discriminated against Seals based on sex and sex stereotyping."

Please contact Old Dominion and urge them to issue an apology and institute fair practices for gender variant workers.

That's scary. There's a fair number of trans truckers out here.

Old Dominion is a union shop too.
