    Former Valve employee files $3.1 million lawsuit over wrongful dismissal

    [Because they had the mental illness of thinking they were another gender.]

    The suit also alleges employee misclassification and a hostile work environment.

    A former Valve translator has filed a $3.1 million lawsuit against the company, alleging that she faced discrimination, a hostile work environment, misclassification as an employee, and ultimately, wrongful termination.

    The suit, available in full on Scribd, claims that the employee's primary responsibility was translating content into Spanish, although she also served as a liaison with law enforcement in Spanish-speaking countries and worked in customer service as well. In 2012, she elected to undergo gender transition surgery, which required a move to Los Angeles. Valve accommodated the request and allowed her to work from home, but only under the condition that she be reclassified as an independent contractor, rather than a conventional employee. Her duties would remain unchanged, however.

    At some point after moving to Los Angeles, the plaintiff filed a complaint with Valve's human resources “about their unfair business practice of utilizing people interested in their products to provide translation services for free.” The people in question “worked hours upon hours based on promises that their work could lead to a paid position,” but it never actually did.

    Shortly after filing a written complaint about the practice in January of this year, the plaintiff was fired, allegedly because her job was being moved back to Washington. But when she offered to relocate, the suit claims, she was refused.

    “The real reason for termination was that Plaintiff was complaining about the hostile work environment and illegal business practices as stated above,” the lawsuit states. “Moreover, Plaintiff was terminated due to her transgender status. While Defendants accommodated her at first, her direct supervisor, Torsten Zabka, referred to her in a derogatory fashion. He referred to Plaintiff as 'it,' which is highly offensive to a transgender person.”

    The transgender slurs are obviously the most visibly troubling allegation in the suit, but as Game Informer points out, the claim of misclassification could be what really bites Valve in the ass. The classification left the Plaintiff facing higher tax and insurance rates, and ineligible for unemployment and disability benefits, but it could also expose Valve to some serious unpleasantness courtesy of the IRS. It's not enough to simply declare that an employee is an independent contractor and call it a day; specific guidelines must be met in order for the classification to be valid, and as the IRS website warns, companies who do so with “no reasonable basis... may be held liable for employment taxes for that worker.”

    Basically a pain in the ass employee who they tried to please but became a liability. Fuck him/her/it.

    I'd be pissed as hell if I lost my job at Valve. It's got to be one of the best companies to work for. This is their new employee handbook (as of 2012) http://www.valvesoftware.com/company/Valve_Handbook_LowRes.pdf I'd kill for a job like that.


    Also, 3 million dollars, human resources, translator... Half Life 3 Confirmed????

    Whenever I read one of these articles about a transgender person and they refer to the plaintiff as "she", I always wondered to myself: is it a woman trying to be a man, or a man trying to be a woman and they are referring to how "he" identifies as a "she"?

    Fucking PC bullshit right there.
    Aren't these people like .0001% of the population?

    The way the media reports on transgender people you would think their numbers rivaled a fucking zombie apocalypse.

    All these laws and civil cases intended to "help" various groups are ( figuratively) fucking them in the ass. Why take a chance? Just move on to another candidate.

    How are you supposed to predict whether someone is going to have a breakdown and decide to cut their dick off down the road? Are there signs?

    Still waiting to see or meet a tranny. Still not understanding how there are multiple national news tranny controversies every single day now yet I have never seen or met one.

    Gays and trannys are worthless to the work force.

    They have proven they will sue if fired and likely fake "discrimination" charges to land a pay day.

    At my work there have been a few of these folks over the years. A couple of gate agents and a PILOT.

    I couldn't help notice a guy with an obvious wig -- kind of a shiny hair helmet. I thought, this guy has hair problems. Well, after a while, I ran across a gate agent who was the ugliest broad I've ever seen...it was this guy who took the wig off and unfurled the bad long hair along with a female uniform. Very distracting.

    Next was another gate agent who was a giant black guy who thought he was a woman and dressed as one. It looked like a giant black guy in women's clothes. Totally distracting.

    Finally, the pilot. He was even uglier that the above tranny. You would notice this really fugly girl across the concourse in a pilot's uniform and squint to get a better look -- then go 'Oh shit, that's so-and-so, no wonder'. Never had to fly with him, thank goodness. I really wouldn't be comfortable with this guy at the controls. He's retired since.
