Civil Rights Law Protects Gay and Transgender Workers, Supreme Court Rules.

According to the Supreme Court's ruling dated Monday, June 15, 2020, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits sex discrimination, applies to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.


In the majority 6-to-3 ruling, Justice Neil M. Gorsuch wrote, "An employer who fires an individual merely for being gay or transgender defies the law." This decision extends workplace protections to millions of people across the nation.
