Litigation attorney Frederick W. Sultan IV discussed with Law360 a sixth circuit decision that a funeral home owner’s religious beliefs did not shield him from a U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission suit claiming he illegally fired a transgender employee.
“It reminds employers that they need to be training employees and supervisors to avoid discrimination based on sex stereotyping, and that includes gender identity,” Sultan said.
A recognized employment law attorney, Sultan’s work includes discrimination, sexual harassment and wrongful discharge litigation. He also reviews and negotiates employment contracts, represents employers before administrative agencies, and offers day-to-day advice to officers, managers and general counsel about personnel issues.
