Five paramedics with the Chicago Fire Department (CFD) are suing the city seeking redress from its “illegal conduct, including the implementation of proper sexual harassment training and the enforcement of a zero-tolerance policy against workplace violence and sexual harassment so they may continue their careers at CFD and prevent other females from experiencing this trauma.”

A complaint has been filed in the Southern District of New York against the New York city police department (NYPD) claiming that LGBT officers are routinely discriminated against, and after they seek redress, retaliated against for doing so. The complaint seeks class action status to cover all officers who have experienced or will experience similar treatment.
