Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Employment Discrimination

Dublin Core

Description

This Chapter will address the current protections that are available to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (“LGBT”) individuals who allege they have been victims of employment discrimination. The Chapter’s primary focus will be on federal statutory law, particularly Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (“Title VII”). Although the focus here is on federal law,
Appendix I to this Chapter lists the states that protect individuals from public and/or private discrimination under state laws. LGBT employees have argued with mixed results in the courts that discrimination against
an individual because of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression is also “discrimination because of sex” prohibited by Title VII. As a result, it is necessary to understand what it means under Title VII to discriminate “because of sex,” and how that meaning has evolved
