For the first time in its history, the EEOC has filed suit against employers alleging discrimination against transgender employees. The two sex discrimination cases involving employees in Detroit and Lakeland, Fla., who were allegedly fired soon after telling their bosses they were undergoing gender transformation from male to female.

These lawsuits come two years after the EEOC issued a statement that it was prioritizing “coverage of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals under Title VII sex discrimination provisions.”
