Protecting LGBT Rights a Priority for EEOC in 2015

In Business, Employment by GWAO

For decades after the passage of landmark civil rights legislation in the United States, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals have been forced to suffer the same types of discrimination that would be illegal against others just because of who they are. Now, the EEOC has come down in favor of finding such discrimination unlawful and federal courts from North Carolina to Florida to Michigan are actively considering the issue in recently filed cases.
