Revisiting Sexual Orientation/Transgender Employment Policies/Practices in light of Recent SCOTUS Decision
» Posted June 23, 2020 Newsletters
A recent decision from the Supreme Court of the United States of America (“SCOTUS”) has changed the previously accepted interpretation of the prohibition against “sex” based discrimination in a major federal employment law to mean that employers may not discriminate against employees solely because of their sexual orientation and/or transgender status. While some states and local governments had previously enacted legislation to this effect in some parts of the country, this decision by SCOTUS marks a major shift in employment law nationwide.
