A labor arbitration panel in China Tuesday rejected a transgender man’s complaint that he was fired unfairly, in the first transgender job discrimination case of its kind in that country.

The 28-year-old plaintiff, who uses the name "Mr. C" to protect his family’s privacy, said he was disappointed but will continue to fight for equality.

The panel in the province of Guizhou ruled that the plaintiff's employer did not break the law in firing him after a week on the job but granted Mr. C’s demand to get paid the equivalent of $62 in back pay.  The plaintiff also wanted an additional month’s pay, but the panel rejected the request and dismissed the case.
