In Major Victory, U.S. Supreme Court Affirms Employment Nondiscrimination Protections for LGBTQ Americans
Historic SCOTUS ruling will guarantee more than 5 million LGBTQ Southerners workplace protections, more vital than ever as millions of Americans face unemployment in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic
Today the United States Supreme Court affirmed in a 6-3 ruling written by Justice Neil Gorsuch that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on sex, also protects people who are fired because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. The court’s decisions in three related cases are available here.
