Height Discrimination

Two noteworthy developments in the ignored world of heightism and height discrimination:

Bayonne, New Jersey Police Sergeant Patrick Burns case - Burns filed a lawsuit against the city, alleging that he was harassed at work on account of his short stature. The city fired back by firing Burns alleging he violated numerous department policies and procedures. Well, Burn's appeal met with some success recently, as his termination was reduced to a 6 month suspension.

Also, two New York waitresses were fired for being too short and have filed a $500,000. lawsuit for gender discrimination. We will keep you updated on this case as we will be watching it closely as it moves through the court.
