    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit has agreed with the EEOC that a funeral home engaged in unlawful discrimination when it fired a male funeral director who was “transitioning” to female and dressing as a woman at work. The case is EEOC v. Harris Funeral Homes. The opinion is by Karen Nelson Moore, a Clinton appointee and one of the most left-wing federal appeals court judges in America. She was joined by Bernice Donald and Helene White. Donald, an Obama appointee, is also a far leftist. White was nominated by Clinton but blocked by then-Senator Spencer Abraham....

    President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is an open advocate for “sexual liberty” over religious freedom.. Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) has called on Trump to withdraw her nomination, saying that her “radical views on marriage and the appropriate use of government power place her far Commissioner Chai Feldblum began serving on the EEOC under the Obama administration in 2010. Her second term will end this July. Last year, Trump nominated her to a third term; if she is confirmed by the Senate, Feldblum will serve until 2023.outside even the liberal mainstream.” Key quotes from Feldblum: “I’m...

    Nightmare Before Christmas: Trump Re-Nominates Architect of Obama’s LGBT Agenda Chai Feldblum to EEOC. ( Full title ). President Donald Trump has re-nominated radical sexual identity activist Chai Feldblum, the architect of former resident Barack Obama’s LGBT agenda, to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Feldblum is a nightmare of a nominee for those who value religious freedom, private property rights, and the science-based standard that there are two sexes – male and female. As Obama’s most liberal gender ideology activist, Feldblum has said that whenever LGBT issues conflict with religious liberty and private property rights, religious liberty and private...

    It’s obvious what’s going on. Team Trump has nominated a leading LGBT activist whose views are antithetical to those of most social conservatives and is trying to smuggle her across the finish line before the Christmas recess — and, above all, before members of Trump’s base catch on.

    NFL players who disrespect our nation's flag and National Anthem are claiming it is a protest about equality and they have to do this because they are not being heard. I say we stand with them by demanding that the US Department of Labor and EEOC enforce all existing employment and affirmative action rules on the businesses that participate in the NFL to make sure that their respective employee demographics reflect the US population by the end of the 2018-19 season.

    A year before leaving office, President Barack Obama announced new steps to narrow what was described as a gender pay gap. Obama directed the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), in partnership with the Department of Labor, to annually collect pay data by gender, race and ethnicity from businesses with 100 or more employees. On Wednesday, the Trump administration put that Obama-era order on hold. In a memo to the EEOC, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) said it is launching a review of the effectiveness of the equal pay data collection initiative. (Companies are still required to...

    The former top federal prosecutor in Nevada has been cited for misconduct in an 8-year-old sex discrimination case. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission determined earlier this year that a former female prosecutor was subjected to sex discrimination and retaliation while Greg Brower was in charge of the U.S. attorney’s office in Nevada from January 2008 to October 2009, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Thursday. Brower is currently the FBI’s top liaison with Congress during its investigation in Russian election meddling. He was also a former Nevada legislator. The eight-page decision by the commission issued May 19 was obtained by...

    Under new rules put forth by the Obama administration, it’s now considered discriminatory for companies in the U.S. to require that employees speak English, but it’s OK to require that workers speak a foreign language. The new enforcement guideline is meant to crack down on “national origin discrimination” in the workplace, because according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the American workforce is “increasingly ethnically diverse.” “The increased cultural diversity of today’s workplaces presents new and evolving issues with respect to Title VII’s protection against national origin discrimination,” the EEOC writes. “This enforcement guidance will assist EEOC staff in their...

    Judicial Watch ^ | December 1, 2016
    Requiring employees in the United States to speak a foreign language is not discriminatory but forcing them to speak English violates federal law under a sweeping order issued by the Obama administration to crack down on “national origin discrimination” in the workplace. The government’s new enforcement guidelines state that bilingual requirements don’t meet discrimination claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act but English-only rules do because they’re restrictive language policies. The administration asserts that the new rules, which cover a broad range of scenarios that could get employers in trouble, were created because the American workforce is “increasingly...

    In a push to hire minority police officers, the Obama administration is asking the nation’s 18,000 law enforcement agencies to forgive drug use, disregard the criminal records of candidates from “underrepresented communities” and lower standards on written and physical exams. It’s part of the administration’s Advancing Diversity in Law Enforcement initiative following a string of officer-involved shootings involving African Americans. Key to the mission is the racial diversification of local law enforcement agencies so that they “better reflect the diversity of the communities they serve.” To accomplish this, several barriers must be removed and the details are outlined in a...

    (CNSNews.com) – The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) released a comprehensive report Wednesday examining law enforcement hiring, recruitment, and retention policies with the aim of increasing diversity in police departments. The report--"Advancing Diversity in Law Enforcement"--highlighted barriers to diversity within police departments, such as “the use of criminal background checks” which the researchers found “is likely to disproportionately impact racial minority applicants.” The report also found that U.S. citizenship requirements “may prevent a considerable number of racial and ethnic minorities – many of whom have valuable foreign language skills – from being hired by...

    Full title: Dreadlock Ban Isn’t Discrimination; Court Rejects Govt. Claim of “Racial Distinctions in the Natural Texture of Black and Non-Black Hair” A federal appellate court has ruled against the Obama administration’s claims that firing a black woman for wearing dreadlocks constitutes racial discrimination and the government agency representing the employee poses an interesting question: Would a woman wearing a hijab face the same fate? The answer is no. Muslims have more rights in the U.S. workplace than African Americans, it seems. In the aftermath of several rulings protecting Muslim rights to wear religious head covers on the job, a...

    On January 8, 2014, Complainant filed a formal complaint in which he alleged that the Agency subjected him to discrimination on the basis of race (African American) and in reprisal for prior EEO activity when, starting in the fall of 2013, a coworker (C1) repeatedly wore a cap to work with an insignia of the Gadsden Flag, which depicts a coiled rattlesnake and the phrase “Don’t Tread on Me.” Complainant stated that he found the cap to be racially offensive to African Americans because the flag was designed by Christopher Gadsden, a “slave trader & owner of slaves.” Complainant also...

    DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) - The push for transgender acceptance is making its way to funeral homes, as a transgender funeral director is taking a Christian-run business to court for refusing to accept his charade as a female. According to arguments heard August 11 by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, Anthony Stephens, who now goes by the name Aimee Stephens, was denied the "right" to dress as a woman while at work after coming out as transgender in 2013. Stephens reports he provided his employer, RG & GR Funeral Homes in Detroit, with a letter outlining his...

    When I was young, a phrase I heard rather frequently was “Don’t make a federal case out of it.” These days, however, you don’t hear that so often, probably because it’s now ridiculously common and absurdly easy for people to “make a federal case” out of nothing more than a gripe – provided it’s a politically correct gripe. As an example, consider the recent Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) case involving a post office worker who complained of illegal “workplace harassment” because another worker persisted in wearing a cap with the Gadsden Flag and its “Don’t Tread on Me” motto....

    Equal Employment Opportunity Commission: It might be discrimination or something You know that government can’t restrict your speech. Officially. But they can in all kinds of practical ways, just as they can do lots of other things to you without ever really taking an official action against you. Take the famous “Don’t Tread On Me” cap. Congress will never pass a law that says you can’t wear that cap, just because politicians may not like what the cap stands for. Constitutionally, Congress cannot do so. But if you think that means the government can’t come down on you for wearing...

    The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is considering whether wearing clothing in the workplace with the Gadsden flag printed on it constitutes legally actionable racial harassment. According to Eugene Volokh, a UCLA law professor who runs the “Volokh Conspiracy” blog at The Washington Post, the EEOC ruled two months ago that it will need to collect more evidence in a case filed in Jan. 2014 by an African American federal employee who complained about his coworker wearing a hat with the Gadsden flag printed on it. The complainant said that the Gadsden flag, which was designed during the Revolutionary War in...

    "The former employee who filed a complaint with the EEOC was at all times free to dress as desired outside of work," added ADF Legal Counsel Caleb Dalton, "but was required, as all other employees are, to abide by the dress policy while on the job." . . . The funeral home hired the biologically male employee as a funeral director and embalmer at its Garden City location in 2007. Funeral directors at the company regularly interact with the public, including grieving family members and friends. After informing Rost of an intention to begin dressing as a female at work,...

    An additional four Ariens employees have been terminated for not following break policy, according to a company spokesperson. In total, 11 employees of the Brillion company have been terminated over break policy and 14 have resigned over the issue. The workers, all Muslims, say the break policy interferes with prayer. In January, CEO Dan Ariens told employees the company would be enforcing the policy of two scheduled breaks lasting 10 minutes. The company said some non-Muslim workers had raised concerns about other employees taking unscheduled breaks to pray. Ariens said the company needed to address the issue to minimize the...

    The Obama administration plans to require large employers to peel back the curtain on how much they pay men and women in a push to narrow long-standing earning gaps between the genders. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will roll out details of the plan Friday to begin gathering a summary of pay data from employers with 100 or more workers. The data will be used to identify employers that may be engaging in pay discrimination so that the agency can target its enforcement resources where problems may be likeliest to exist. The proposal would cover more than 63 million U.S....
