Will I sacrifice quality for quantity?
Since you’re not paying me anything to blog, you bet I will. Hopefully, you won’t see it that way. But, if feel otherwise, go jump in a lake I’m sorry.
So, where was I? Oh yes, on Friday, Chris Opfer at Bloomberg Law scooped that “a group of 16 states urged the U.S. Supreme Court Aug. 23 to rule that companies can fire workers based on their sexual orientation and gender identity without violating federal workplace discrimination law.”
The sixteen states are:
- Kentucky, which is technically a Commonwealth,
- South Carolina,
- South Dakota,
- West Virginia, and
Their argument is one we’ve seen many times before; namely, that Title VII prohibits discrimination based on “sex,” while there is nothing explicit in the statute about LGBT rights.
I’ll keep you updated as to whether the Supreme Court will opt to hear the case.
In the meantime, you know what to do. Don’t discriminate against LGBT individuals.
