It just got a little easier for a transgender person to work at American Eagle Outfitters – at least on paper.
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 community group complained to Cuomo’s office about what it called a pattern of discrimination against transgender job hunters. A probe confirmed the complaints, officials said.
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.
