Good Eats, runs a family restaurant in a state which prohibits discrimination in employment based upon gender identity and disability.
Its employees are required to wear name-tags, and to dress the same (black pants and shirt, minimal jewelry, conservative make-up).

to change her name-tag to read "Gail," and
to use the women's restroom.
