March 25, 2011

Associate Professor of Law Zachary Kramer ’s new paper, “Of Meat and Manhood,” was featured in a Psychology Today blog post entitled, “Can a Vegetarian Sue for Employment Discrimination?”

Kramer’s paper highlights Ryan Pacifico, a former currency trader who contends that he was fired from his job for being a vegetarian. Pacifico claims that his former employer harassed him for being a vegetarian, consistently mocking him because he was not what a “real man” ought to be. In his paper, Kramer argues that Pacifico should be able to sue his former employer for gender-stereotyping. The ability to sue an employer under the sex discrimination law established in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
