Civil Rights Act Extends Job Discrimination Protections to LGBTQ Community

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is a federal law that prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex and national origin. On Monday, June 15, 2020, the United States Supreme Court ruled that this law would be extended to the LGBTQ community, meaning that it is illegal to discriminate against gay and transgender employees.
