Supreme Court Issues Landmark Ruling Prohibiting Discrimination Against LGBT Employees

On June 15, 2020, the Supreme Court held that Title VII forbids employers from firing employees because they are homosexual or transgender. This is a historic win for LGBT rights and the prevention of workplace discrimination. The court held that the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits sex discrimination, also applies to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

AMWA participated in the Amicus Brief for the Grimm vs. Gloucester County School Board case in 2017 which was referenced in this Supreme Court case.
