SD Store Settles With Fired Transgender Employee

Updated: September 18, 2013, 7:27 AM

RAPID CITY, SD -

A Rapid City grocery store has settled with an employee who claimed she was fired for being transgender.

Cori McCreery says she was fired in 2010 from Don's Valley Market after she announced she was transitioning from being a man to being a woman. McCreery had worked at the store on and off for five years and at one point had held a supervisory position.

McCreery filed a discrimination complaint and the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission investigated. The EEOC says the store has agreed to pay McCreery $50,000 and apologize to her.

The store also must develop an anti-discrimination policy and provide anti-discrimination training annually for employees.

Store owner Don Turner says he settled to avoid a costly legal fight and does not admit guilt.
