The Supreme Court Rules L.G.B.T. Workers Protected Under Title VII



In an amazing landmark decision, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled on Monday, June 15, 2020, that gay and transgender workers are protected from workplace discrimination under Title VII. Justice Neil M. Gorsuch writing for the majority stated "An employer who fires an individual merely for being gay or transgender defies the law." He further wrote: "It is impossible, to discriminate against a person for being homosexual or transgender without discriminating against that individual based on sex." The decision has been compared to other landmark cases on discrimination.


In essence, the Bostock v. Clayton County case will allow L.G.B.T. workers to pursue remedies under Title VII if they were discriminated against by their employer for their sexuality. If you feel that you have been discriminated against because of your sexuality you should reach out to an attorney right away to discuss your rights.
