Trans Woman Receives Settlement in Lawsuit Against Hospital

Faye Seidler, a transgender woman who has brought a lawsuit against her former employer, Sanford Medical Centre in Fargo, ND, has reached a settlement for discrimination in the workplace.

The lawsuit was filed against the hospital after Seidler left her job following what she described as unfair and discriminatory treatment when they denied her access to the women's locker room.

The hospital's attorney stated in court documents that accommodations were being made for Seidler when she chose to end her employment in March last year.  

Seidler's attorney has released a statement saying that a settlement has been made outside of court proceedings 'to the mutual satisfaction' of both parties, though the terms of the settlement have not been made known.
