New LGBTQ+ Resources

In Bostock v. Clayton County, the United States Supreme Court held that “firing individuals because of their sexual orientation or transgender status violates Title VII’s prohibition on discrimination because of sex.” On the anniversary of the decision, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) compiled and released new resources for employees and businesses regarding sexual orientation and gender identity (“SOGI”) discrimination.

Business Takeaway: For those unfamiliar with or unaware of your businesses’ obligations related to SOGI discrimination, the information consolidated by the EEOC provides an extensive overview of existing laws and recent litigation, as well as technical assistance. Contact Corey at corey@goldsteinsc.com if you have questions regarding SOGI discrimination.
