Supreme Court Ruling in Landmark LGBT Case

Posted by April Grunden | Jun 19, 2020 | 0 Comments

                The United States Supreme Court ruled on Monday, June 15, 2020 that gay and transgender workers are protected under Title VII from discrimination in the workplace. Prior to this decision, employers in more than half of the country's states were legally able to fire workers for sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Title VII states that it is against the law to fail/refuse hire or terminate employment of any person based on the individual's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. The debate was led by the word “sex” in the Title, as it has no direct implication as to what it contains, therefore its legal application was undetermined. After analysis, the court ruled that “sex” included that of sexual orientation and gender identity. The case was argued on October 8, 2019 and decided on June 15, 2020.
