Two Trans Netflix employees file complaints about unfair labor practices

The battle between Netflix and its employees takes a different turn when they protest that trans employees have filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board (NRLB) about unfair employment practices at the company. They further alleged that the company retaliated against them for their involvement in a group of workers’ strike protests against Netflix’s broadcast of comedian Dave Chapelle’s comedy special The Closer.

Employees said in the complaint that the company was involved in reprimanding employees for talking about the company’s culture and the impact of their product choices on the LGBTQ+ community.

B. Pagels-Minor, the manager of Netflix’s Trans Black program, was fired earlier. The company claims that Pagels-Minor released confidential company information to the press.

Terra Field, a Trans software engineer, was also suspended. The company claims the two were suspended for trying to attend an unscheduled board meeting. However, they were reinstalled. They posted a viral thread on Twitter criticizing the company’s decision to criticize Chapelle’s latest special, claiming the comedian attacked the Trans community and the validity of “transnity”.

However, the company denies the accusations, stating that the actions against the employees involved were not instituted to manifest or participate in the movement.

Attorney Laurie Burgess released a statement saying the indictment is a class action, aimed at supporting colleagues who talk about things that matter to them.
