Jollibee and Amazon Face Transgender Bias Claims

UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — A transgender woman and her husband are suing Amazon for suffering workplace discrimination and harassment.

Allegra Schawe-Lane and her husband, Dane Lane, said they were both insulted and sexually harassed while working at an Amazon warehouse in the U.S. state of Kentucky.

They said someone even cut the brake lines of their car.

They also say nothing was done to help them when they reported the harassment and that supervisors even joined in.

Meanwhile, in the Philippines, fast food chain Jollibee has apologized for discrimination against a transgender employee.

Bunny Cadag, who prefers to be referred to as “they” and “them,” described in a viral Facebook post how they were asked not to return to Jollibee after working there for one day because of their gender identity.

Jollibee tweeted its apology letter on Aug. 9, saying it was an isolated incident and that the company does not tolerate disrespect, discrimination or harassment.
