Park v. Advantage Security (USA)

02restroom

Pauline Park – a co-chairwoman of the New York Association for Gender Rights Advocacy, which helped lobby for the amendment to the New York City Human Rights Law – obtained a settlement under an amendment to a New York City law that forbids discrimination based on sexual identity whether or not it differs from a person’s biological sex. The settlement, administered by the city’s Commission on Human Rights, found that people working for Advantage Security, a New York security guard company, discriminated against Ms. Park when they demanded to see her identification after she used a women’s restroom at the Manhattan Mall in Herald Square.
