Shaun Simmons, a transgender man, has filed a federal lawsuit against Amazon alleging the company discriminated against him after he became pregnant. Simmons was a warehouse worker for the online behemoth before he was fired.
The lawsuit also names two of his former supervisors. Simmons alleges that the two outed him to other employees, spurring more harassment and discrimination from his co-workers.
Simmons claims that after he informed his supervisors that he was pregnant, they began to criticize his work performance in an attempt to demote him. His co-workers, he said, verbally abused and harassed him and once confronted him in the bathroom.
