Lane Powell Counsel to the Firm Peter Partnow was quoted in an April 6 Alaska Dispatch News article titled “Lynne Curry: Employee Coming Out Has Rattled Some Cages.” In the article, an employer asks if there are any issues with firing an employee who recently came out as gay. The employer claimed that the employee’s coming out created tension and other issues in the office. Partnow advised, based on applicable legal standards and the facts as presented, that the employer lacks a legally sustainable basis for terminating the employee.
