May 18-Trans man says New Orleans police rescinded job offer because of his gender identiy

A transgender man says the New Orleans Police Department rescinded his job offer because of his gender identity.

Britton Hamilton, 33, said he was hired by the force last year, after passing both a civil service exam and physical agility test in July, and later an interview and background check.

On Dec. 14 he said he was granted conditional employment — but his dream of becoming a police officer came to an end a month later, after the NOPD rescinded its offer on psychological and behavioral grounds.

“I thought when I got my letter that was it, I was over the conditions threshold,” Hamilton told the local NBC-affiliated television station WDSU.

Now, he’s filing a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, arguing that the real reason for the police’s abrupt change of tune was because he’s trans.

According to the NOPD’s application process for new hires, after successfully completing the initial tests, candidates are “cleared for hire.”

“[Candidates] will be given a conditional offer of employment and scheduled for medical and psychological screening. Once cleared for hire [they] will be offered a position within the department until the next Academy class is scheduled,” the NOPD says on its website.

After he received the conditional job offer, the NOPD requested additional employment information, including documents related to his honorable military discharge 12 year earlier, according to Nola.com — even though when he first applied to the job, the police had requested information covering only the last 10 years.

Hamilton — who said that a cisgender candidate who applied at the same time had already received the uniform to complete the academy training — said that one of his interviewers spent a considerable amount of time asking about his transition.

However, even after providing the NOPD with the additional documents, Hamilton said that they still wanted more medical documentation.
On Jan. 26 he received an email from a city official saying that the NOPD would not hire him “based on a psychological a*sessment of (his) emotional and behavioral characteristics.”

“I was caught off guard when I saw that because I’ve been transitioning for over six years. My name is changed, my gender is changed,” he told WDSU.

A doctor who prescribes him hormones said in a letter that Hamilton was “intelligent, responsible, reasonable and kind.”

According to the letter, written a week after Hamilton received the news, the doctor has not seen “any evidence of emotional or behavioral instability.”

The department said in a statement that its decision “not to move forward with the applicant in question did not involve any discrimination against the individual as a member of a protected group.

But Hamilton disagrees.

“Just to be denied because of my gender was very heartbreaking,” said Hamilton, who legally transitioned in 2016, and has been married to his wife, Mallory, since 2018.

“My being trans doesn’t affect my capabilities to serve my community,” he told Nola.com.

It’s a gang. They’ll bring back dirty cops fired by other precincts or departments but won’t hire someone who is different.

Cops should all be 6 4 230lbs+ so they aren't afraid of their own shadow and quick to pull the trigger.

I used to absolutely hate being stopped by cops that I could dummy effortlessly when I was with the sh*ts

ALL trans people serve their time in the Hole in Louisiana prisons. They are looked as drama starters, distractions and liabilities.
