DOJ is fighting hard for the Christian American employer and has suggested that they can force woman to wear skirts and if they refuse they can be fired.
The DOJ’s stance is so appalling that the EEOC refused to sign onto the brief. The argument of Solicitor General Noel Francisco, a Trump nominee, is that Title VII is limited only to discrimination based on “biological sex” only and therefore doesn’t cover the firing of Stephens for being transgender. Put another way, the DOJ is arguing that Title VII applies when, say, women are treated worse at a job then men are, but not when transgender workers are treated worse at work than non-transgender workers.
It gets worse. The DOJ brief endorses the view of the funeral home owner, Thomas Rost, who said “the Bible teaches that it is wrong for a biological male to deny his sex by dressing as a woman or for a biological female to deny her sex by dressing as a man” and that he would fire any woman who refused to wear a skirt while at work.
Okay. I actually cut employers a lot of slack, so I could go along with this if they don’t work with the government. If they do though, well that sucks for the employer. Then they have to do what their employer says(government). Otherwise they can quit and find somewhere else to work(non government work). Simply out of curiosity, would you be fine with a private company requiring hijabs for women?
