Ravesi v. Naz Fitness Group (USA)

The Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination ruled in favor of a transgender woman who claimed she was fired from a Framingham fitness studio five years ago because of her gender status. The commission ordered Naz Fitness Group to compensate Jackie Ravesi back pay losses of $154,850 on top of $25,000 in emotional distress damages, according to a copy of the January decision.

We support this decision, as no one should lose employment because they are transgender.
