Lambda Legal this week filed an EEOC complaint against Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Society, Inc. on behalf of David Jeffcoat, a former employee who said he was fired after his bosses at the Aboretum found out he was gay.

This is the second EEOC complaint Lambda Legal has filed against Dallas Aboretum this year. The first was filed in January on behalf of another LGBTQ former employee — a white, genderqueer lesbian who said their former bosses discriminated against them based on their sexual orientation, gender identity and mental and physical disabilities.

The individual in that case has asked to remain anonymous. As with the first complaint, Lambda Legal also filed a Human Relations Discrimination Complaint on Jeffcoat’s behalf with the city of Dallas under the city’s “Unlawful Discriminatory Practices” ordinance which prohibits discrimination in the workplace based on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.

Lambda Legal filed the complaint on behalf of Jeffcoat on Tuesday, March 31. Lambda Legal attorneys Shelly L. Skeen, pictured above, and Nicholas Guillory are handling the case.
