Fair????? Putting aside separation of church and state, I believe employment laws will prevail.Read More This case will appear in court to set a precedence. Many of St. Lucy’s administrators knew of Mr. Bencomo’s sexual orientation prior to marriage so it makes it kind of difficult when you state that you don’t believe in something yet turn the other way, all up until it becomes ‘real’ public knowledge in the papers. As I said last year, attorney’s would be chomping at the bit to represent Mr. Bencomo; I expect this will be a win. It’s a change of the times; people voted for gay marriage to be allowed – so he isn't breaking the law and to boot you tell him on the way out that he was an exceptional teacher???? Clearly wrongful termination.

It states: "“Capo’s TAs and Budget all passed, mostly on 4-3 votes. So they are inRead More good shape, fiscally for, now. There was clearly tension among the Board members, but I didn’t have a chance to talk with Clark to find out what might be the cause.

We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Private doesn't matter. All employers both public and private must comply with the law and includedRead More in that are rules against discrimination. California law goes beyond Federal and includes sexual orientation. Most likely this will result in an out of court settlement.

I am reminded of the coach recently who posted pictures online that his district foundRead More objectionable. He is gay. He lost his job and case. That was a public school.It's far easier to discriminate in a private school and get away with it.
