Teacher says sexual orientation led to firing(一)

The teacher with children in the kindergarten. 


A former kindergarten teacher in Qingdao, Shandong province, has taken the school to labor arbitration, alleging discrimination because he is homosexual.


Yu Liying, the teacher's lawyer, told an arbitration committee on Tuesday that the teacher was "fired indirectly" for his sexual orientation and demanded his job back. The kindergarten said the man resigned voluntarily.


Wei Wenquan, the kindergarten's owner, said "the teacher himself quit by writing a resignation letter".


The kindergarten was jointly founded by Wei and the teacher - who asked not to be identified by name.


The teacher had no labor contract with Wei but was paid a regular salary and had his social insurance covered.


On Aug 5, the teacher shared an article on WeChat titled "I am proud of being gay". The article was seen by some of the kindergarten children's parents who were his WeChat friends.


Some of the children's parents complained to Wei and worried that the teacher's sexual orientation may have a negative influence on their children.


In an interview with China Daily on Tuesday, Wei said, "I have a neutral attitude toward homosexuality, but as the kindergarten's investor and a father, I think this will make children's parents anxious and negatively affect the kindergarten's operation and the children."


"I offered him two choices - continue to be a teacher without disclosing his sexual orientation, or write a resignation letter and accept compensation," Wei said. "And he chose to write the letter."
