Transgenders win discrimination tiff with American Eagle Outfitters, AG Andrew Cuomo forces changes
Attorney General Andrew Cuomo has forced the flannel and khaki outpost to make some changes, including nixing a rule about employee "personal appearance" that banned men from wearing women's clothing and ladies from dressing as guys.
"This shows me that there's faith and hope. There might be a domino effect, that's what I'm hoping for," said Joi-elle White, 35, a transgender member of Make the Road New York.
The retailer - which employs more than 2,000 people in its 61 New York stores - signed a settlement deal promising to change its policies and employee handbook.
The chain store also has agreed to train its staff on transgender issues - like which pronouns to use when referring to workers and customers.
