15 June 2020 - US: Gay and transgender worker rights finally protected by Supreme Court ruling
Justice prevailed! In a landslide 6-3 ruling from a conservative supreme court on a 56 years old Civil Rights Act, the rights of gay and transgender workers are protected in the United States. Because “An employer who fires an individual merely for being gay or transgender defies the law.”
Until this ruling, it was legal in more than half of the States to fire workers for being gay, bisexual or transgender. This sets the tone for more recognition on these universal human rights.
