Blanchette v. Saint Anselm College
In June 2005, GLAD filed a lawsuit in U. S. District Court in New Hampshire on behalf of a transgender woman in New Hampshire who was fired from her job at St. Anselm’s College when she told her employer that she would be transitioning from male to female. Some weeks after informing her employer of her plans, she was handed a letter that read in part, “As you know, you recently disclosed to us your transgender status. Upon consideration, you are immediately relieved of your duties.” Mediation took place in December 2005 and in January 2006 GLAD settled the lawsuit on mutually satisfactory terms.
