This **** has gone too far. This is a nursing home, maybe residents would be uncomfortable with someone who is a transgender. After all, they are bathing them and helping them with changing. I understand he/she got fired (never really started the job). This is a no win situation, next a resident's family sues for not disclosing the fact that the N-A is a transgender.

What upset you about the settlement?

There is no reason to believe the nursing home actually paid a dime to the plaintiff.  The corporation agreed to do things that the corporation likely felt perfectly comfortable in doing.

As to the possibility "residents would be uncomfortable with someone who is a transgender," so what?  Nursing staffs are both male and female.  If you go into a doctor's office do you get weirded put if you have to drop your trousers in front of a female nurse?
